Hillsborough County Property Appraiser, Bob “Coach” Henriquez, speaks at Young Executives Luncheon!

November 7, 2023

On October 31st, Bob had the opportunity to speak at The Tampa Club’s Young Executives Luncheon at the beautiful Tampa Club high atop the Bank of America in downtown Tampa. Guests enjoyed a delicious meal and panoramic views of the city while learning more about the roles and responsibilities of Hillsborough County’s Property Appraiser.

In 1998, Bob followed his ambitions to serve his community to a new level when he was elected to the Florida Legislature as a State Representative. There, he developed a reputation as a legislator eager to put aside party politics for the good of his constituents. After four terms in office, Bob was appointed to head up the Pinellas and Pasco counties division of the Department of Children and Families. He served in that role for three years. Currently, he 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.

What is the Property Appraiser? The Hillsborough County Property Appraiser is an elected official charged with the duty and responsibility to assess all the property in the County. This includes real estate and tangible personal property (the equipment, machinery, and fixtures) of businesses. The Property Appraiser, Bob Henriquez, is required by law to assess all property within the county each January 1st. In Hillsborough County, this means the Property Appraiser determines the market value for hundreds of thousands of individual parcels, including residential, agricultural, multifamily, commercial, and industrial, as well as thousands of personal property accounts. The Property Appraiser must administer homestead exemptions, agricultural classification, determine the eligibility of certain religious, charitable, educational, and municipal property for tax exemption, as well as administer widow, widower’s and disability exemptions. The Property Appraiser also maintains current and up-to-date legal descriptions and ownership tax maps of all the real property in Hillsborough County.

We enjoyed learning more about Bob and the essential work his team brings to the Tampa Bay Community!
