For 2013, the County will no longer be sending our separate billings for MSBU fees. They will be included in your Ad Valorem tax bill you receive in November. The Ad Valorem taxes, together with the MSBU fees, will be due March 31st, 2013, as they have been in the past.
The Ad valorem taxes billed are for calendar 2012. The MSBU taxes (on the same billing statement) will be for the fiscal year beginning October 1, 2012, as they have been in the past. If a leaseholder were to sell their leasehold in 2013, the closing agent should treat these two portions of the tax bill separately for the purposes of pro-rating taxes in the closing statement.
There is a public hearing scheduled for September 11, 2012 at 5:00pm at the Commissioners Chambers on the first floor of the County Government Complex at 221 Palafox Place, Pensacola FL.
