Appraisal Data Management, 561.355.2890


The Appraisal Data Management department collects and reviews property data for the preparation of the annual tax roll. The department makes every effort to use the most current and precise information for maintaining and analyzing the data. In addition, the department maintains Portability applications and petitions to the Value Adjustment Board.

According to Florida law, the value petition filing period begins the day the Truth In Millage (TRIM) notices are mailed (usually in August) and ends 25 days later. Petitions can be filed to challenge the value assessment of one’s property, the denial of an exemption or classification, portability, and change of ownership or control determinations affecting the 10% cap.

The Property Appraiser’s Office is responsible for assessing more than 635,000 parcels and 58,750 tangible personal property accounts in Palm Beach County. On average, petitions filed in Palm Beach County are very low.
