F.S. 193.0237
193.0237 Assessment of multiple parcel buildings.
(1) As used in this section, the term:
(a) “Multiple parcel building” means a building, other than a building consisting entirely of a single condominium, timeshare, or cooperative, which contains separate parcels that are vertically located, in whole or in part, on or over the same land.
(b) “Parcel” means a portion of a multiple parcel building which is identified in a recorded instrument by a legal description that is sufficient for record ownership and conveyance by deed separately from any other portion of the building.
(c) “Recorded instrument” means a declaration, covenant, easement, deed, plat, agreement, or other legal instrument, other than a lease, mortgage, or lien, which describes one or more parcels in a multiple parcel building and which is recorded in the public records of the county where the multiple parcel building is located.
(2) The value of land upon which a multiple parcel building is located, regardless of ownership, may not be separately assessed and must be allocated among and included in the just value of all the parcels in the multiple parcel building as provided in subsection (3).
(3) The property appraiser, for assessment purposes, must allocate all of the just value of the land among the parcels in a multiple parcel building in the same proportion that the just value of the improvements in each parcel bears to the total just value of all the improvements in the entire multiple parcel building.
(4) A condominium, timeshare, or cooperative may be created within a parcel in a multiple parcel building. Any land value allocated to the just value of a parcel containing a condominium must be further allocated among the condominium units in that parcel in the manner required in s. 193.023(5). Any land value allocated to the just value of a parcel containing a cooperative must be further allocated among the cooperative units in that parcel in the manner required in s. 719.114.
(5) Each parcel in a multiple parcel building must be assigned a separate tax folio number. However, if a condominium or cooperative is created within any such parcel, a separate tax folio number must be assigned to each condominium unit or cooperative unit, rather than to the parcel in which it was created.
(6) All provisions of a recorded instrument affecting a parcel in a multiple parcel building, which parcel has been sold for taxes or special assessments, survive and are enforceable after the issuance of a tax deed or master’s deed, or upon foreclosure of an assessment, a certificate or lien, a tax deed, a tax certificate, or a tax lien, to the same extent that such provisions would be enforceable against a voluntary grantee of the title immediately before the delivery of the tax deed, master’s deed, or clerk’s certificate of title as provided in s. 197.573.
(7) This section applies to any land on which a multiple parcel building is substantially completed as of January 1 of the respective assessment year. This section applies to assessments beginning in the 2018 calendar year.
