Forward Pinellas, a third party agency, provides an unbiased resource that allows unincorporated residents to estimate the difference in annual taxes and fees before and after annexation. The Truth in Annexation Worksheet allows property owners to input their own information in order to determine whether it would be beneficial to annex into a City based on their usage.
