Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How can I find out information on my property, i.e. my assessed value, previous taxes paid, etc.
A: The Property Appraiser's (Bill Donegan) website is very informative and user-friendly. Just go to www.ocpafl.org and click on the left-hand side tab that says Property Searches. Please note that at the current rates, the taxes that City property owners pay to the City of Orlando make up only 30% of their entire tax bill. Taxes are also levied by the Orange County School Board, Orange County, Orange County Library System and the St. John's River Water Management District.
Q: Why can't the Tourist Development Tax be used to pay for general revenue-type expenses, such as police, fire or public works projects?
A: Florida State Statute created by the Florida Legislature governs not only where and how the Tourist Development Tax can be levied but also narrowly defines how the money, once collected, can be spent- mostly on items or programs that have some relationship to the tourism industry, such as a county convention center.
