Broward County Commissioners Cut Property Tax Rate by One Percent.

Broward County Commissioners agreed to cut the property tax rate by one percent in fiscal year 2017, meaning that most homeowners with a homestead exemption will see no increase on the county portion of their property tax bill.

The total recommended budget for FY17 is $4.7 billion, which includes all property tax supported and non-tax supported funds such as federal and state grants. The proposed one-percent reduction sets the FY2017 millage rate at 5.669.

While the average homestead property taxpayer will not pay any additional taxes, for some homeowners, changes in the market value of their property will affect the amount of their property tax bill.

Budget hearings were held September 15th and 27th to allow for the public to comment on the new budget, before it was approved on September 27th.  The new budget takes effect October 1, 2016, with the beginning of the 2017 Fiscal Year.
