Hillsborough County Property Appraiser, Bob “Coach” Henriquez, speaks at University Club’s Speaker Series!

August 8, 2023

The University Club of Tampa’s August speaker series took place last week featuring Hillsborough County Property Appraiser Bob Henriquez, who discussed the roles and responsibilities of his office and the community involvement that takes place within those duties.

As a fifth-generation resident, Bob is deeply rooted in the Tampa Bay community and devoted to serving his community in many facets. A former head football coach at Tampa Catholic high and state legislator in the Florida House of Representatives, Bob has served the citizens of Hillsborough County as Property Appraiser since 2013. The Property Appraiser is an elected official charged with the responsibility of assessing the market value of all properties in the county. This includes both real estate and tangible personal property (the equipment, machinery, and fixtures of businesses).

In addition to assessing the more than half million properties in Hillsborough County, the Property Appraiser must also administer all property tax exemptions, including homestead exemption, as well as agricultural classification, the eligibility of certain religious, charitable, educational, and municipal property for tax exemption, and widow, widowers, and disability exemptions.

Currently, Bob serves as Secretary of the Florida Association of Constitutional Officers (FACO), is President of the Property Appraisers’ Association of Florida (PAAF) and sits on the Board of Directors for the Family Healthcare Foundation.

As Property Appraiser, Bob has worked tirelessly to ensure all property assessment his offices oversee is fair, equitable and transparent. He has also made great strides to improve the HCPA’s efficiency and public service through innovation and technological advances.
