Pinellas County has extended the Surface Water Mitigation Credit application timeframe. Fully completed and certified applications must be received by Wednesday, Dec. 31, for credits to apply to the 2014 property tax bill.

The Mitigation Credit Policy allows for a potential credit for Pinellas County unincorporated properties that can demonstrate that they provide relief to the county drainage system through onsite stormwater treatment. Any stormwater treatment systems must be certified as compliant by an engineer and properly maintained. The actual credit is based on the volume of water retained or detained onsite.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact Pinellas County Natural Resources at (727) 464-8759 to ensure their documentation is complete.
