City property tax rates and District assessment rates are set forth by the North Port City Commission budget process. The process begins in April and ends in September. The operating tax (millage) rates and participating district assessments are sent to the Sarasota County Property Appraiser and Sarasota County Tax Collector to be placed on the yearly November property tax bills which include the Ad Valorem portion based on a property's taxable value, and a Non-Ad Valorem section based on services provided to the property.
Ad Valorem Taxes
Ad Valorem taxes are based on the taxable value of property. North Port's millage rate is 3.8735 for the Ad Valorem portion of the tax bill for 2020.
A millage rate is the rate of tax per thousand dollars of taxable value. To determine the Ad Valorem tax, multiply the taxable value by the millage rate and divide by 1,000. For instance, $75,000 in taxable value with a millage rate of 3.8735 would generate $290.52. This means a property owner would pay $3.8735 per $1,000 of taxable property value.
Non-Ad Valorem District Assessments
Non-Ad Valorem assessments are based on demand for services which are provided by the North Port Districts.
