About the VAB and review process

The Value Adjustment Board consists of two members of the Board of County Commissioners, one member of the County School Board, and two Citizens. The Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller also serves as Clerk to the VAB.

The Florida Department of Revenue (FDOR) provides the above Uniform Policies and Procedures Manual that outlines the VAB process. You are encouraged to review this manual before attending your hearing, along with all notices sent to you by the Clerk to the VAB.

The Clerk to the VAB is also responsible for scheduling hearing dates and times for all petitioners. Petitioners will receive a notice of hearing at least 25 days prior to the scheduled hearing date. Notices will be mailed to the address that appears on the petition form. If a petitioner has changed addresses, it is his/her responsibility to notify the VAB Clerk.
