TRIM Notice PSA


I have been made aware that a small subset of the 2018 TRIM Notices did not print as legibly as desired. We are working with our vendor to identify where the error occurred in their printing and mailing process. If the data printed on the TRIM Notice you received by mail is not clear, please note that an electronic version may be printed from your Property Record Card. Just use our Real Property Search or Tangible Property Search functions to look up your data. Should you have any questions or need assistance please do not hesitate to contact me at eddie@sjcpa.us or 904-827-5520.

Thank You,
