In your mailbox soon: property tax notices from the Miami-Dade appraiser

Property tax notices were mailed Friday to the nearly one million property owners in Miami-Dade County Friday, the property appraiser’s office said.

Each notification, offically called a TRIM notice, contains information that includes 2013 property values, proposed tax rates, and budget hearings.

“It isn’t a bill,” said Jeri Bustamante, the property appraiser’s spokeswoman. “It is just for information.”

The notices will also include a new assessment review process for property owners to request adjustment to their assessments, Bustamante said.

The county appraiser’s office is using a new review process that allows people to address value concerns quicker than appealing through the value adjustment board, which can take more than a year.

The property appraiser’s office will host a series of town hall meetings to answer questions about property tax notices.

The dates and locations for the meetings:

•  Thursday, Aug. 29 at 6 p.m. at the Naranja Branch Public Library, 14850 SW 280th St., Naranja.

Wednesday, Sept. 4 at 7 p.m. at the North Dade Regional Library, 2455 NW 183rd St., Miami Gardens.

•  Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 7 p.m. at the West Kendall Regional Library, 10201 Hammocks Blvd.

Monday, Sept. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Miami Beach Regional Library, 227 22nd St.
