A message from your Property Appraiser

Welcome to the Manatee County Property Appraiser’s website. As your Property Appraiser, I am personally dedicated to running this office in the most cost-effective manner possible without sacrificing our commitment to excellence in property valuation - and to providing quality and professional customer service to the taxpayers of Manatee County.

During this busy season of filing for Homestead Exemption, I would like to encourage you to utilize our online filing system. From this homepage, simply click on the icon titled “File for Homestead Online” and you will be taken through a step-by-step filing process. We trust you will find this method of filing for the exemption a bit less painful than driving in to see us. While our staff is always available for person-to-person assistance, the downtown Bradenton area is undergoing quite a bit of road construction. We hope that making the filing process available to you electronically will ease some of the traffic frustration you may experience downtown during this busy season.

Please feel free to contact our knowledgeable staff should you have any questions.


New change of address form- We have released a new change of address form on our website. Try it out now by clicking the change of address box at the top or click here.

County Permits dated prior to 1992 are no longer available on this site- Please visit the County Building and Development Services site at www.mymanatee.org should you require information on older permits.        

Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records. If you do not want your e-mail address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead contact the office by phone or in writing.
