Welcome to the
Suwannee County
Property Appraiser Web Site.

 Notice of 2020 Certification of Tax Rolls

As Property Appraiser of Suwannee County I am charged with placing a fair and equitable market value on every parcel of property both real estate and tangible in our county. Many people believe the Property Appraiser determines the amount of taxes a property owner will pay but this is not the case. The job of property appraiser is to assess property for tax purposes; the taxing authorities (Board of County Commissioners, School Board, City Council, Water Management) set the tax rate for all property and therefore the amount of taxes to be assessed.

Lamar Jenkins, CFA :

  • Elected Suwannee County Property Appraiser 1973
  • Designated as Certified Florida Appraiser since 1974
  • Member of Property Appraiser's Association of Florida
  • Served on PAAF Board of Directors
  • Property Appraiser's Association of Florida President 2001-2002
  • Member of International Association of Assessing Officers

    The Property Appraiser's office is not a department of the Board of County Commissioners. He is an elected official and his authority comes from the Florida Statutes. The Florida Department of Revenue is charged with the oversight and review of the operations of the appraiser's office and performs in-depth audits of the tax rolls every two years to determine the integrity of the assessments.

    Other responsibilities of the Property Appraiser include the administration of exemptions (homestead, widows, widowers, blind, disability and total exemptions), maintenance of property ownership records, and maintaining aerial photographs of the county. More information is available concerning exemptions at other sites within this web site.

    I trust this web site will be of benefit to you as a property owner and hope you will contact me if you have any questions. appraiser@SuwanneePA.com

  • Sincerely yours,
    Lamar Jenkins, CFA
