The tax collector serves as the collection agent for all taxing authorities and distributes the funds. The Board of County Commissioners, school board, city councils/commissions, and taxing authorities set the tax millage rates. The property appraiser establishes the taxable value and exemptions of the property. For questions about exemptions and changes of ownership or address, visit the property appraiser's website, manateepao.com, or contact that office at (941) 748-8208.
The mission of the Manatee County Tax Collector's Office is to perform our duties with integrity and respect, focusing on innovation and serving with excellence.
