Welcome To The Hernando County Property Appraiser Website

I would like to personally welcome you to our website.

This office has seen many changes since I began my career with the Property Appraiser's Office in 1988.  Our main goal has always been to produce a fair and equitable property value tax roll each year.

My staff and I are dedicated to running the office efficiently, cost effectively and continuing to provide the best possible service to our citizens in a professional and courteous manner



We hope the website will be helpful to property owners, businesses and the general public.  If you still have questions after viewing the site, I encourage you to call one of our Public Services Specialists at either of the offices or email us.


Thank you for visiting our website.

john3 NEW Historically Hernando Walking Tour Map

Hernando County was established in 1843. Brooksville was established in 1856 and incorporated in 1880.  The homes featured in this walking tour are some of the homes of our early families that helped make Brooksville the community it is today.

As a member of one of the earlier families that settled in Hernando County I am happy to be able to share this walking tour with you.

NEW Change for Low Income Senior Renewal Cards

Low Income Senior Renewal Cards will no longer be mailed annually.  The exemption will automatically be renewed.  If you no longer qualify for the exemption please contact one of our offices.  Please refer to our Low Income Senior Exemption eligibility requirements under our Exemptions section.

Our office has made a few new enhancements to our Property Search.

1.  In the GIS Map tab we now have a JPG feature that enables you to export the selected parcel (Ortho imagery with parcel lines). 

2. In the Parcel details tab we now have a print button that prints out the complete parcel details information on the compound search.  Basically, the same feature as the previous parcel search. 

3. Under the Structure tab we now have options to search for sinkholes.
