Search the Tax Roll Records


The Tax Collector has the authority and obligation to collect all taxes as shown on the tax roll by the date of delinquency. Ad Valorem taxes are collected on an annual basis beginning November 1st and are based on that calendar year from January 1st through December 31st.

Tax notices are mailed to the owner’s address as it appears on the certified tax roll, normally on or before November 1st. If you do not receive a tax bill in November, you may print one from our website or contact our office to request a copy be mailed to you. Taxes may be paid online, in person at one of our offices, or by mail (Postmark does apply on current tax payments).

Why Did My Taxes Go Up?
An increase in the assessed value of the property or the loss of an exemption are common changes that affect the tax amount. The Property Appraiser’s office determines the assessed value and exemptions on the tax roll. If you need to discuss these amounts, contact the Property Appraiser’s office or visit their website Gilchrist County Property Appraiser.
How Do I Correct the Mailing Address on My Tax Bill
Complete the change of address form included with your tax bill and return it to the Property Appraiser’s office. Or visit the Property Appraiser’s website Gilchrist County Property Appraiser for more information.
What Should I Do If I Sold This Property
Notify the Tax Collector’s office so a tax bill can be mailed to the new owner. Changes to the tax roll made after the cut-off date (typically July) will not be reflected until the following tax year.
How Do I Apply for Homestead Exemption
Homestead and other Exemption Applications are processed by the Property Appraiser’s office. You can visit their website for more information at Gilchrist County Property Appraiser
