Orange County residents should be receiving their annual Truth-In-Millage notices prepared by the county’s property appraiser’s office after about 524,000 were mailed out last week.

These TRIM documents include 2019 information on the value of all of Orange County’s residential and commercial properties, as well as all business accounts or tangible personal property.

“This is an enormous undertaking for the OCPA team, and we take it very seriously,” Rick Singh, Orange County’s elected property appraiser, said in a press release. “Our role in the taxation process is to fairly and accurately determine the market and taxable value of homes, commercial properties and TPP accounts so that millage rates from their municipality, if located in one, and other taxing authorities can be applied to calculate the annual tax bill.”

Singh stressed that the TRIM notice is not a tax bill; that document will be sent by the Tax Collector’s Office in the fall.

Properties are subject to millage rates from various taxing authorities, such as Orange County, water management districts, state and local public schools and public libraries, as well as from municipalities.

OCPA will be staffing neighborhood satellite offices in multiple libraries through Sept. 9 if residents have any questions about their notice.
