Value Adjustment Board
The Clerk & Comptroller serves as the Clerk to the Value Adjustment Board as required by
Florida Statutes 194.032(3).
The Value Adjustment Board (VAB) is an independent entity that is comprised of two elected members of the Pasco County Commission, one elected member of the Pasco County School Board, and two Pasco County citizens. The Department's function to this Board is to accept and verify petitions received over the counter and through the mail; work in conjunction with the Property Appraiser's office to schedule hearings; and notify petitioners by certified mail of their hearing schedule. It is also this Department's responsibility to attend the proceedings and make audio recordings.
Once recommendations are submitted by the Special Magistrates, the recommendations are mailed to each petitioner who may then file a written exception to the VAB before the final hearing. A complete list of the recommendations are distributed to the Board members for their review prior to the Board's final hearing. According to Florida Statutes 193.122 the Department prepares the Certificate of Value Adjustment, which is signed by the Board following the final Value Adjustment Board hearing. A Notification of the Decision form is prepared and sent to each petitioner advising them of the disposition of their petition. The Department also prepares the Impact Notice and submits it to the newspaper to be advertised within the time constraints as listed in the Florida Statutes.
Pursuant to Florida Statutes 194.035(1), the Pasco County School Board is billed two-fifths of the expense of the hearings.
