Gov. Ron DeSantis recently signed an executive order to suspend deadlines for payment of property taxes in counties that have been impacted by Hurricane Ian.
The order extends to real property, including personal homes and commercial property, that was destroyed or otherwise rendered uninhabitable.
“Floridians who have lost their homes and businesses because of Hurricane Ian shouldn’t have to now worry about their property taxes,” he said in a prepared statement.
Counties included in the order are Brevard, Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Flagler, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Highlands, Hillsborough, Lake, Lee, Manatee, Monroe, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Putnam, Sarasota, Seminole, St. Johns and Volusia.
