The Citrus County Property Appraiser’s office uses nationally recognized appraisal systems and a Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal (CAMA) system to gather, store and analyze the large body of data necessary to arrive at a fair market value for each parcel of property in Citrus County. Actual sales prices of like properties in similar neighborhoods are a key component of the data needed by the skilled and professionally trained appraisers who assist the Property Appraiser in analyzing the real estate marketplace and evaluating your property.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Property Appraiser does not determine property taxes. Any candidate that promises that they can lower your taxes is not being honest - this is against the law. This is the responsibility of the taxing authorities in Citrus County. These include County Government, the School Board, Southwest Florida Water Management District, and others. The Property Appraiser is responsible for identifying the market value of property in the county. In reality, the market value is determined by the economy. This amount, less the cost of selling the property, is the basis upon which the property is appraised.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Florida law specifies that every property must be inspected at least once every five years. Staff appraisers physically inspect the properties to determine any changes such as additions, changes in condition, etc. The results of the physical inspection are noted in the CAMA system and are used in the annual calculation of the appraised value of the property.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
