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 Emailed or Mailed
Ebills for the first quarterly installment of 2022 taxes were emailed May 24th, and paper bills were mailed at the end of May. If you pay your taxes by this method and have not received your tax bill by the second week in June, access your account online. You will be able to print a receipt immediately after payment is complete. If you are interested in paying your taxes in four quarterly payments, unfortunately, it is too late to sign up for the 2022 tax year and you will receive the annual tax bill in November. However, once you receive your 2022 tax bill, you can sign-up to pay your 2023 taxes by installment. For more information, click here.

Service Update
Appointments are recommended for all services and can be scheduled online.

If you are establishing residency or are a seasonal resident, you are eligible for an appointment. If you live outside of Sarasota County, please contact your local Tax Collector. Customers who walk in without an appointment may encounter a long wait or may be turned away if the office is at capacity.
