collector, discounts for payments made before delinquency shall be at the rate of
4 percent in the month of November or at any time within 30 days after the sending
of the original tax notice; 3 percent in the following month of December; 2 percent
in the following month of January; 1 percent in the following month of February;
and zero percent in the following month of March or within 30 days before the date
of delinquency if the date of delinquency is after April 1.
(2) If a taxpayer makes a request to have the original tax notice corrected, the discount
rate for early payment applicable at the time of the request applies for 30 days after
the sending of the corrected tax notice.
(3) A discount rate of 4 percent applies for 30 days after the sending of a tax notice
resulting from the action of a value adjustment board when a corrected tax notice
is issued before the taxes become delinquent pursuant to s. 197.333. Thereafter, the regular discount periods apply.
(4) If the discount period ends on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the discount
period, including the zero percent period, extends to the next working day, if payment
is delivered to the designated collection office of the tax collector.
