2015 Value Adjustment Board Training
Before conducting any VAB hearings, this training is required for all special magistrates and all VAB members or VAB attorneys in counties with a population of 75,000 or less that do NOT use special magistrates. Individuals who are otherwise qualified, have at least three years of relevant experience and want to be considered for appointment as a special magistrate must complete this training and the exam.
Value Adjustment Board Orientation
The Department of Revenue has produced an online orientation video for Florida value adjustment board members. This brief video provides an overview of Florida’s property tax system and describes the roles and responsibilities of board members, board attorneys, board clerks, and special magistrates. This video was designed for orientation purposes only and is not a replacement for the department’s value adjustment board training specified in s. 194.035(3), F.S.
