St. Lucie County releases 2022 estimated tax property values
St. Lucie County Property Appraiser, Michelle Franklin, officially released the 2022 estimated taxable value of real estate and personal property to the 24 Taxing Authorities within St. Lucie County. The estimated taxable values are working numbers that are due to the taxing authorities by June 1 annually per statute. The estimates provide assistance to our Taxing Authorities as they develop their operating budgets and determine proposed millage (tax) rates.
“Taxable values are capped at 3% for homesteaded properties, and 10% for non-homesteaded properties, however, new construction is applied to the Roll at full value. New construction, totaling more than $823 million, coupled with our extraordinary real estate market, produced the highest taxable value we have ever seen in St. Lucie County,” said Michelle Franklin.
- St. Lucie County - Taxable value is estimated at $29 billion, which is a 14% increase over the 2021 tax year.
- City of Port St. Lucie - Taxable value is estimated at $15.8 billion, which is a 19% increase over the 2021 tax year.

- Town of St. Lucie Village - Taxable value estimated at $87.9 million, which is a 14.50% increase over the 2021 tax year.
Pursuant to Florida law, the 2022 taxable assessment reflects the value as of January 1, 2022.
