Taxing Authorities

The assessed value of real estate and tangible personal property is established by the Property Appraiser. However, taxes are levied by the taxing authorities. A Taxing Authority is a unit of government that determines tax rates and levies taxes. The Florida Constitution directly authorizes taxing authorities to levy ad valorem taxes. Listed below are the taxing authorities in Hillsborough County, along with applicable telephone numbers.
