On Tuesday, November 9, 2021, Indian River County Property Appraiser Wesley Davis presented a check for $106,572 to the Indian River County Board of County Commissioners representing the amount of last year’s budget returned.
2021 marks the third year that Davis has returned unspent money from the budget to the taxpayer. He has been able to return over $500,000 in three years since taking office.
“We came in with a budget cut but were still able to return more than 6 figures,” Davis told Sebastian Daily.
Earlier this year, Davis announced that his new online application process has benefited Indian River County residents, and it’s been another tool to help save taxpayers. The capability to apply for Homestead Exemptions, Agricultural Classification as well as filing Tangible Personal Property returns were added last year to the Property Appraisers website at IRCPA.ORG.
“What we are really pleased about is the growing use of our safe and easy online application process,” Davis told Sebastian Daily.
Davis was Appointed Property Appraiser after the death of long time appraiser David Nolte in January of 2019 and was elected without opposition in 2020.
