Overview

Florida law allows payment of real estate taxes and tangible personal property taxes through an installment plan if your estimated tax due is $100 or more. This plan allows you to pay your taxes in four quarterly installments instead of once per year.

The first and second quarterly installments are based on the prior year's gross tax. The third and fourth quarterly installments reflect adjustments to the tax amount after certification of the new year's tax roll.
