Consumer Alert for Property Owner Protection
The Santa Rosa County Property Appraiser's Office continues to seek new ways to serve you. We have prepared this web site to give you an overview of our many functions and how this office and the various taxing authorities interact with the property owner.
It is our pleasure to provide these helpful facts on the valuation and tax process as well as to explain various benefits available through tax exemptions in the State of Florida.
Please feel free to visit or call our office with your comments and/or questions.
Please be patient with us while we transition over into our new site.
We understand that many things have changed and some parts of the website are not functioning perfectly. If you are having issues or need help with doing something, please don't hesitate to give us a call at 850-983-1880.
Citizens and Property Owners of Santa Rosa County:
In an effort to protect our citizens and staff, a great deal of organizational energy has been expended to optimize social distancing interactions as we begin reopening to the public. With the Governor’s recent executive order, effective Monday, June 8, 2020, our Milton office will reopen on an appointment only basis. Please contact one of my staff at (850) 983-1880 to schedule an appointment. In the alternative, you can continue to use our new online chat system to address and resolve many issues from outside locations. I encourage the use of the chat feature on this site prior to making an office visit. Many have already utilized this feature and have reported outstanding results.
Property owners who have received Homestead filing letters can still file their homestead exemption online. We can also assist with exemption applications via our chat system, if you have not received a letter or there is another exemption to which you are entitled.
The South Service Center office will continue to be closed until I can ensure the safety of our citizens and my staff. Plans to reopen this office for the convenience of the citizens are currently under review.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. Our online filing systems of homestead exemptions and tangible personal property coupled with the new chat system has allowed us to continue to serve you. I have employed kiosks which will take your temperature before entering our office. Wearing a mask is preferred until we receive further clarification from our governmental health officials. These precautions are for your safety and my staff. As a reminder, our chat system is available after hours allowing you to leave us an email so we can address your inquiry the next business day. Thank you.

Procedures for reporting Storm Damage
The Santa Rosa County Property Appraisers office recognizes there may be homes with damage due to the recent storm activity. Please notify our office if there is damage to your home or any outbuildings using our chat feature at the bottom right of this page or via email at email@example.com. One of our staff members will contact you to gather the necessary information for assessment purposes. Please understand we are working with limited staff due to Covid-19 and to help reduce the any risk of transmission our field staff are making site visits on a limited basis. If you have any questions please contact us at (850) 983-1880. Any repairs completed prior to Jan. 1 would not allow this office by Florida Statutes to make any reductions in your assessment. If it’s our opinion the damage permanently affects your value, we will make the appropriate adjustment.
