PROPERTY TAX PAYMENT DUE DATE EXTENDED
Department of Revenue Executive Director Jim Zingale has issued an emergency order to extend the final due date for property tax payments for the 2019 tax year. Order of Emergency Waiver/Deviation #20-52-DOR-001applies to all 67 Florida counties. Property tax is normally due by March 31 in the year following the year the taxes are assessed. The Department waives the due date so that payments remitted by April 15, 2020, for the 2019 tax year will be considered timely paid. Property taxpayers can visit the official Lee County Tax Collector website to complete their payment online. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on March 16 directed the Department of Revenue to provide flexibility on tax due dates to assist those adversely affected by COVID-19. In addition, Zingale issued Emergency order #20-52-DOR-002 in relation to filing deadlines for Florida businesses.
