The Property Appraiser's Office has recovered over 1/2 of a million dollars for the citizens of Alachua County in 2014. Over $529,900 was recovered from businesses either not reporting or incorrectly reporting their tangible assets, and from individuals wrongly claiming Homestead Exemption. Alachua County Property Appraiser Ed Crapo stated, "Our office has a statutory requirement to make sure the valuation of properties is not only correct but also complete and accurate. I am proud to have a highly trained professional staff that is certified in the appraisal, valuation and exemption processes. The effort that they have put forth to identify these properties and verify these monies is paying big dividends for the citizens of Alachua County"
