Notice to Bay County Property Owners

Tax Collector Chuck Perdue is very sensitive to the needs of Bay County citizens affected by the recent
damage due to the hurricane; however, state law requires the tax collector to mail and collect 2018
property tax bills.
Below are a few important things to remember:
 We understand your property may not be in the condition it was in on Jan. 1, 2018. However,
State law requires taxes be assessed as of Jan. 1, 2018 for the 2018 year.
 Property taxes are payable anytime between now and March 31, 2019. Please keep in mind
there is no penalty for late payment until after March 31, 2019, and you do receive a discount if
you pay early. The tax collector has extended the 4-percent discount period through Dec. 31,
 If your home, storage building, shed or commercial building was destroyed, please remember to
contact the Bay County Property Appraiser’s Office at 850-248-8401 so your assessment can be
adjusted for next year (2019).
 Please remember our property tax dollars go to help pay for many services, including fire and
rescue, law enforcement protection and infrastructure such as roads and utilities. Our taxing
authorities’ resources have been significantly depleted as they have responded to needs and
continue working towards recovery in the wake of Hurricane Michael.
The Bay County Property Appraiser has certified and delivered the 2018 Bay County Ad Valorem and
Non-Ad Valorem Tax Rolls to the Office of the Bay County Tax Collector. Beginning, Thursday, Nov. 1,
2018, the tax rolls are open for collection.
