Martin County Taxable Values are up, but not as much as last year.
The Honorable Laurel Kelly, Martin County Property Appraiser has released the 2019 estimated taxable values for Martin County properties. Overall values countywide increased about 3.16% as compared to 6.1% for 2018. Part of the reason for the lesser increase is the phasing out of the FPL power plants in Indiantown, FL. The preliminary estimates were released on June 1 with final estimates released on July 1, which show overall taxable values for Martin County of over $22.6 Billion. According to an article by TCPalm.com, Indiantown was the only incorporated municipality to see a decrease in values year-over-year. The remaining municipalities all saw increases with Ocean Breeze seeing the largest increase of 22.5%. Stuart is expected to see an increase of 7.3%, Sewall Point about 4.1% and Jupiter Island about 3.4%. Unincorporated Martin County appears to be up 5.5% year-over-year. According to Laurel Kelly, there was about $231 Million in new construction that was added to the 2019 tax roll.
The amount you will pay in property taxes for 2019 is directly based on the County’s opinion of Market and Assessed Value for your property. With property values on the rise for most property types, it is important for a qualified property tax professional to review and analyze your properties to ensure that your values are fair and equitable.
