St. Johns County, FL to Consider Recommended Proposed Millage Rate
The Commission will Consider the Fiscal Year 2023 Recommended Budget and Proposed Millage Rates. The annual County budget process requires a number of steps, ranging from its preparation through adoption, per Florida Statutes (F.S. 129.03(3) and F.S. 200.065, Truth in Millage requirements). The Truth in Millage (TRIM) process informs taxpayers and the public about the legislative process by which local taxing authorities determine ad valorem (property) taxes. On July 19, 2022, The Board of County Commissioners received the FY 2023 Recommended Budget, balanced with expenditures and adequate reserves within each County fund equal to projected fund revenues. County Administration's Recommended Budget represents a funding level that can reasonably assure the achievement of St. Johns County’s operational needs while minimizing the tax impact on its citizenry. An electronic version (in pdf format) of the workbook may be found on the County's website at: www.sjcfl.us/OMB. Following the development and presentation of a Recommended Budget, the County is obligated to provide certain information concerning that budget to the Property Appraiser. This information includes 1.) The FY 2022 adopted millage rates; 2.) The FY 2023 proposed millage rates; 3.) The FY 2023 calculated rolled-back rates; and 4.) The date, time, and meeting place of the tentative budget hearing. This information is placed on Department of Revenue DR–420 forms provided to the Property Appraiser. Those forms provide the basis for the “TRIM” notice mailed by the Property Appraiser to property owners in St. Johns County. The BCC will need to approve proposed Millage rates (see the attached sheet) for the County’s TRIM mailing, and approve September 6, 2022 at 5:01 PM in the County Auditorium as the Date, Time and Place of the first public hearing for the adoption of the FY 2023 Annual Budget. For practical purposes, once the proposed Millage rates are set, they can still be decreased but not increased.
