The Value Adjustment Board
The Value Adjustment Board (VAB) is an independent quasi-judicial review board. If you believe your property assessment is not what a buyer would have reasonably paid for your property on January 1, 2018, you should first contact our office. If after speaking with one of our appraisers, you still do not agree, you can file an appeal with the Broward County Value Adjustment Board. If you were denied an exemption, you may also file an appeal with the Value Adjustment Board challenging this denial. The absolute filing deadline for Value Adjustment Board petitions is September 18, 2018. If you would like to file a petition online, please visit the VAB website. If you have any questions for the Value Adjustment Board, they can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 954.357.7205.
The VAB office is located in the Governmental Center at 115 S. Andrews Avenue, Room #120, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301.
