The Clerk of the County and Circuit Courts is the Clerk to the VAB. The VAB as a panel considers and renders
a decision on all appeal petitions relating to property assessments, classifications and exemptions. The VAB has
no jurisdiction or control over taxes or tax rates established by taxing authorities. The VAB’s one and only function
is to hear evidence as to whether or not properties, petitioned for their consideration, are appraised at their fair
market value and determine if an agricultural classification or exemption should be approved. The VAB cannot
change an appraised value for any other reason, such as inability to pay.
Florida Value Adjustment Boards are governed by the Florida Statutes and the Florida Administrative Code (FAC).
Florida Value Adjustment Boards are required to follow the Uniform Rules contained in the Florida Administrative Code.
