New Northeast Government Center now open

The Polk County Property Appraiser is excited to announce that we have moved our Winter Haven Branch office to better accommodate the growth in Polk County.  Our new home is in in the Government Center - 200 Government Center Blvd, Lake Alfred 33850.
Our Winter Haven Branch office permanently closed April 21, 2023, at 4:30pm.   Property appraiser services resumed at the new Lake Alfred location on May 1, 2023.

Our office in the new government center is nearly double the size of former Winter Haven location.  The additional space allows us to serve more customers throughout the year.  This is especially important during our busiest seasons:

•  JAN - MAR 1
Homestead and Exemption Filing
Mailing of the Truth-In-Millage (TRIM) Notices
Mailing of the Tax Bills

Our larger and more modern office not only accommodates an increase in the number of customer service staff, there is room for staff members from other departments to aid and assist our customers as needed.  As always, the programs and services available via a visit to our main Bartow office are and will continue to be available at our Lakeland and new Lake Alfred branch locations.

To contact us, please visit the contact page on our website:  Phone Number and Directions (

We are grateful for the opportunity to serve the citizens of Polk County and we look forward to providing excellent customer service from our new location!!!

You are welcome to attend the Northeast Government Center Grand Opening on May 6. We hope to see you there!
