Welcome and thank you for visiting our FAPA website.

The Florida Association of Property Appraisers (FAPA) was founded in 1989 with the mission of uniting Florida’s constitutionally authorized Property Appraisers in promoting fair and equitable assessments throughout the State of Florida. FAPA hosts regular educational and legislative conferences throughout several member counties to ensure our members stay up to date on the issues facing our taxpayer constituency. Our association plays an active role in shaping property tax policy by continuously communicating our constituents’ concerns and needs to our State legislators. During legislative sessions, we closely monitor bills under consideration by The Florida Senate and The House of Representatives and provide administrative insight to individual policymakers and the various taxing authorities.

As the 2017 President of the Florida Association of Property Appraisers (FAPA), I am honored and eager to have the opportunity to build on the great foundation and successes from previous years. Since inception, FAPA has been at the forefront of assessment issues including the creation and implementation of Save Our Homes and the non-homestead assessment limitations. Most recently, FAPA was influential in the passage of a constitutional amendment to the Long-Term Senior exemption. The recent change protects long-term, low income property owners over the age of 65 from losing their exemption, if their home value exceeds $250,000 in subsequent years.

These accomplishments would not have been possible without the continued service of our valued members and legislative partners.

I’m looking forward to continuing to work with our community this upcoming legislative session and invite you to visit our website often for upcoming conference information and legislative updates.

Warm Regards,

Pedro J. Garcia, MNAA, President
Miami-Dade County Property Appraiser
