The Volusia County Tax Collector's website is at You can search by entering the address of the property, by owner name, or parcel id. The results it brings up will show you prior year tax amounts.

Hi Connie,

I see you have had several answers to your question. First and formost taxes are based on the sale price of previous home sales within a certain area and can change from year to year based on market activity during a year time frame. If the home your are interested in is a primary residence ( homestead) or a 2nd home will make a differecne. Homestead properties enjoy some precentage reduction in taxes that a 2 nd home would not. Weather a home has homestead is easy enough to find on the County Appraisers site but previous year taxes are a little more difficult as there are many factors that come in to play. For the first time in my 11 years of having a homestead property my taxes increased significately due to the decline in property values. I did not see the address of the home you are most interested in if you would like to share that with me I would try and give some reasonalbe answer.

I will also add this is a great time for a new purchase as the prices have not been this favorable for buyers in years. Florida is still a great state live or have a 2nd home.

just curious as to why this makes a dfference?

With homestead exemption and the new laws where you may be able to get tax credits, I would thing that would need to be factored in to a home buying decision.

If you own a house now, principal residence for 5 of last 8 years, you qualify for this tax credit.
If you are new home buyer, not owned a house for last 3 years, you qualify fot that tax credit.

Factor in all the possibilties and get an agent that can help you meet your needs. What the taxes have been over the last ten years is pretty irrelevant as that can change by lunch tomorrow. A good idea would be to hire a professional real estate consultant to advise you.

Good luck and happy house hunting!

You can also go to to gain access to tax records as well. The easiest way is to look up the property address on the Volusia County Property Appraisers web site, get the owners name and then do your tax seach by owner name. Hope this helps.
