Tax appeal fee could triple

October 23, 2009 04:52PM

State officials want to make fighting property tax bills more expensive for Floridians. As property tax appeals climb to record highs, the state legislature is considering tripling the appeal filing fee to $15 from $5. Palm Beach officials, meanwhile, have asked for an increase to $50, because the $15 fee isn’t enough to cover processing costs to consider appeals, according to Palm Beach County’s Value Adjustment Board.
