Tax Assessor - Collector
The Martin County Tax Assessor-Collector is a constitutional officer mandated by the Texas constitution, elected by and directly responsible to the people. The Constitution of the State of Texas of 1845 originally set-up an elective office of Assessor and Collector of Taxes. Many changes have taken place over the years leading to the current responsibilities of County Tax Assessor-Collectors. Assessor-Collectors are elected to four-year terms and are one of only two constitutionally mandated county-wide elected positions.
Because of the wide range of responsibilities performed by the Assessor-Collector, most citizens deal with this office more frequently than with any other. The Office of the Tax Assessor-Collector provides services for Property Tax Collections and is designated by statute as the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) agent for the collection of motor vehicle sales taxes, registrations, and other related fees.
Until 2013 the Tax Assessor-Collector also served as Voter Registrar for Martin County. On October 1, 2013, those duties, along with the County Clerk's responsibilities for conducting elections, passed to the newly created position of Elections Administrator who now maintains the records of registered voters. The Tax Assessor-Collector's office also issues tax certificates, conducts Sheriff Sales for real and personal property, and collects State mandated vehicle inventory tax.
The Martin County Tax Office collects ad valorem property taxes, Road & Bridge taxes and collects taxes for the Permian Basin Underground Water District for Martin County.
We are committed to serving you. Please don't hesitate to call us should you have any questions regarding your property taxes, vehicle title or registration.
The Martin County Clerk and Comptroller's Office is excited to announce that tax deed sales have moved to an online auction. For more information on upcoming sales see:
A Tax Deed Sale is the sale of property to the highest bidder at a public auction to recover delinquent property taxes.
The Tax Deed sale process commences when a certificate holder files an Application for Tax Deed with the Tax Collector's Office. The Tax Collector's Office certifies the application to the Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller (the Clerk) and a Tax Deed Sale is scheduled.
Important Notice: All properties are sold as is. Bidders are responsible for conducting their own research as to the property being sold, its location or condition, the condition of any structures or fixtures thereon, its marketability, potential uses, zoning, or whether any other potential liens or defects in the title may exist.
Statutory Authority for Tax Deed Sale Proceedings
The Clerk's Office follows sections 197.502 and 197.582, Florida Statutes, as interpreted in the Florida Department of Revenue Property Tax Rules, Chapter 12D of the Florida Administrative Code.
Before the Auction
The Clerk notifies property owners and recorded lienholders that the property identified by the Tax Certificate will be sold at public auction if the delinquent taxes, interest and other costs related to sale are not paid. All owners and lienholders are sent notice of the sale by Regular and Certified Mail. Owners are also served a notice by the Sheriff's Department. If the owner is not found, the Sheriff will post a warning notice of sale on the property at least twenty (20) days prior to the auction.
Tax Deed sales are advertised in the Stuart News, once a week for four consecutive weeks prior to the sale.
The sales are held at 10 am, or as otherwise advertised. The sales are conducted electronically at the Clerk's Official Online Tax Deed Sale portal pursuant to 197.542, Florida Statutes.
At the Auction
The successful high bidder shall post with the clerk a nonrefundable deposit of 5% of the total sale or $200, whichever is greater, at the time of the sale, to be applied to the sale price at the time of full payment. The balance of the full payment of the final bid, plus documentary stamp tax and recording fees must be paid within 24 hours of the sale. All funds must be certified as outlined in the administrative policy. Personal checks and credit cards will NOT be accepted. Upon receipt of payment in full, the Clerk will issue and immediately record a Tax Deed in the Official Records of Martin County, Florida. The owner may redeem the property until the entire balance is paid in full and the Tax Deed is signed by the Clerk.
If there are no bids higher than the opening bid, the property is struck from the auction and offered to the certificate holder. If the property has a homestead exemption and the certificate holder chooses not to take title to the property, the Clerk of the Circuit Court will immediately re-advertise the property and re-set the property for auction within thirty (30) days.
If there are no bids greater than the opening bid on the second sale and the tax certificate holder still does not wish to take title, the property is placed on a list of lands available for sale. If unsold after 7 years, the property is turned over to the County.

The man again dug into her reddened lips, spreading the legs of the captive even wider and pressing so that the girl had to. Rise on her toes. My legs were trembling, my heart was pounding like mad in my chest, and my thoughts were confused, not allowing Natasha to concentrate. God, does he dare to rape her?.
