County-Held Tax Certificates

County-held tax certificates are available for purchase online at an interest rate of 18% per year. These are the tax certificates that were not purchased at the annual June sale. You can view the list of available certificates without registering as an investor. However, you must register in order to purchase certificates. More information is available online.

June Installment Bills Mailed
eBills for the first quarterly installment for 2019 taxes were emailed May 22nd, and paper bills were mailed May 21st. If you pay your taxes by this method and have not received your tax bill by the second week in June, print your bill or pay online. You will be able to print a receipt immediately. If you are interested in paying your taxes in four quarterly payments, unfortunately, it is too late to sign up for the 2019 tax year and you will receive the annual tax bill in November. However, once you receive your 2019 tax bill, you can sign-up to pay your 2020 taxes by installment. For more information, click here.

Did You Know?

If you own a rental property in Sarasota County with a tenant staying less than one month, you are required to pay the Business Tax and may be required to pay the Tangible Personal Property Tax. If the property is available for six months or less, the Tourist Development Tax must be collected.

You can report someone who may not be paying one of these taxes. Submit an anonymous referral to our Tax Tipline.
