Property tax payment deadline extended to April 15

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Property owners are in luck after Gov. Ron DeSantis extended the property tax deadline for a few more weeks, the tax collector’s office said Thursday.

The property tax deadline was extended to April 15, officials said. The announcement comes under an order of emergency waiver issued Thursday by the Florida Department of Revenue.

“DeSantis continues to demonstrate his abilities as a decisive leader who puts Floridians first,” Indian River County Tax Collector Carole Jean Jordan said in a statement. “Property taxes are normally due March 31 following the assessment year. However, because of the economic abnormalities caused by efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, property taxes paid by the extended deadline will be considered on time.”

Those with driver’s licenses, commercial licenses and state ID’s that will expire within the next two weeks will be given an automatic 30-day extension, Jordan said. The extension is granted by the state.

The offices’ drive-thru windows will remain open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday to help residents. Individuals can make transactions on the tax collector’s website.
