Florida Law requires that your estimated taxes must be more than $100.00 per tax
notice in order to participate in the Installment Payment Plan. If your estimated
taxes are $100.00 or less you do not qualify for this plan. To participate in the
installment payment plan, the taxpayer must submit an application to the Tax Collector
before May 1 and make the first payment no later than June 30.
You must make the first installment payment not later than June 30th in order to
participate in this plan. Once you have elected to participate in the installment
payment plan by timely paying the first payment you are required to continue participation
for the tax year. If you elect to discontinue participation, you will not
be entitled to receive the discounts provided by law. Installment payments that
become delinquent shall be paid with the next installment payment. Discounts will
not be allowed on delinquent payments.
Annual renewal is automatic as long as the June Payment is made each year.
The following is the payment schedule:
- 1st Installment: 1/4 the total estimated taxes discounted at 6%. Payment required
by June 30.
- 2nd Installment: 1/4 the total estimated taxes discounted 4.5%. Payment required
by September 30.
- 3rd Installment: 1/4 the total estimated taxes plus 1/2 of any adjustment for actual
tax liability discounted 3%. Payment required by December 31.
- 4th Installment: 1/4 the total estimated taxes plus the other 1/2 of any adjustment
for actual tax liability. Payment Required by March 31.
Delinquent installment payments must be paid in full with the next installment.
Any amount remaining unpaid on April 1 is treated as delinquent taxes.
