Non-Ad Valorem Assessments are based on the value or benefit to the property. Assessments become part of the 'gross tax' when added to the amount derived from multiplying the taxable value by the millage rate. The following is a list of Non-Ad Valorem Assessments:
Fire Control, Lighting and Landscaping Districts - charge an annual fee for the property within that district.
Maintenance Fees - Bayshore Gardens and Trailer Estates assess property owners an annual fee.
Lot Clearing Liens (Code Enforcement: (941) 748-2071) - By County Ordinance, property owners in Manatee County are required to keep their property "cleared of weeds, brush, debris…" and if the County determines that a property owner has failed to comply with these requirements, the County is authorized to notify the owner in writing to "cut, clear, or remove such weeds, brush, debris…" Upon the failure of any such owner or agent to comply within fifteen (15) days from notification, the County is authorized to "clear said land or to have said land cleared by private contract"… and "assess a lien on behalf of Manatee County against the land for the actual costs of said clearance…" Should the property owner fail to timely pay for the County’s cost of clearing their property, the lien is "collected by the tax collector… and shall thereafter be subject to the penalties and interest to which county Ad Valorem taxes are subject…"
