Palm Beach County June 1st Estimates show increases over 2019 Tax Year
According to a Palm Beach Post interview with Dorothy Jacks, the Palm Beach County Property Appraiser, Palm Beach County taxable values have increased 5.5% over the final 2019 taxable values. She was clear to state that these are pre-pandemic values based on a valuation date of January 1, 2020. Overall, the county grew from $198 Billion to nearly $210 Billion of which, $2 Billion was added via new construction properties being added to the tax roll. Boca Raton remains the largest taxing authority with taxable value over $26 Billion, followed by Palm Beach with $19.9 Billion and West Palm Beach with $14.7 Billion. The largest increase year-over year was seen in Westlake where the taxable value increased over 104% due to new construction of new homes and commercial property. Westlake is the newest municipality in Palm Beach County and has seen massive growth over the last few years.
