Naples Real Estate FAQs
Common Frequently Asked Questions regarding Naples Real Estate
What are the property taxes in Naples?
Property taxes in Naples (Collier County) are very low. The tax rate in Naples is approximately 1.2% of the appraised tax value. Compare that to neighboring Lee County (Estero/Bonita Sprints/Ft Myers) which is around 1.8% in most cases.
Appraised tax values in Naples FL are set as of January 1 each year, based on closed comparable sales of the previous year. So for example, a home's property tax for year 2016, would be based on similar closed sales in year 2014. So the taxes appraised value of a home, lags a year or so behind the homes current value.
Also tax appraised values are conservatively set, as the tax appraiser does not want 300,000 residents appealing for an adjustment in their home’s tax appraised value.
A few communities have a Community Development District (CDD) payment, which is separate from the property tax rate. The CDD amount is added to the tax bill.
