Ken is just right. An added consideration to keep in mind is that today's assessed values are typically quite a bit lower that sale prices. A comparison of the two shows assessed values to be 25 - 30% below sales prices depending on the area. Hope this helps.

Go to the Charlotte County Tax Collector web site for complete details on taxes for a home in Charlotte County:

Go to the City of Punta Gorda for information on homes within city limits. Here is the 2013 Fiscal year budget that has the new millage rates:…

Property Taxes – A home buyer should not rely on the seller's current property taxes as the amount of property taxes that the buyer may be obligated to pay in the year subsequent to purchase. A change of ownership or property improvements triggers reassessment of the property that could result in higher property taxes. If you have any questions concerning valuation, contact the county property appraiser's office for information. The home you are interested in purchasing may be
homestead. Homesteading caps the tax assessments on the home during ownership. MLS records do not necessarily reflect current tax assessments. To apply for homestead or to read through answers to frequently asked questions, visit the Charlotte County Property Appraiser web site at

I would be happy to answer any other questions you may have. I can send you the current tax information on any property or you can search the county site for the current trim notice. You can search my web page for properties if you are looking to purchase a home.

We live in 33950 - our 2012 total millage was 17.649 which is equivalent to 1.7649%. The 2013 mill rate is not yet finalized, nor have the assessed values been certified. Our preliminary assessment decreased approximately $5,400.

The above mill rate is about .7% more than someone with a Punta Gorda mailing address but not within the city limits, i.e., out in the Cleveland area.
