    Tax Collector

    As your Tax Collector, this office will make a daily commitment to excellence in all that we do. Our pledge to every citizen is to provide courteous and professional service, while using innovation to improve our efficiency and reduce our costs. This is your office and you deserve nothing less.

     



    Here are what some of our customers say about your local Tax Collector’s Office:

     

    > > > NOTICE < < <

    THE AVON PARK AND LAKE PLACID BRANCH OFFICES ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED

    We would like to strongly encourage you to please attempt to complete your transactions online or over the phone if possible.

    If you are not able to do so via those methods, our Sebring office located at 540 S. COMMERCE AVE, SEBRING, will be open during regular business hours with limited staff.  To avoid longer waits at the Sebring office, we recommend using our drive-thru window for the following transactions: vehicle registrations, property taxes, and hunting/fishing licenses.

    Please note that our office will be suspending all services for out-of-county residents until further notice.

    In addition, only the customer who is conducting business in the Tax Collector’s Office will be permitted to enter, and we will be restricting the total number of customers waiting in the lobby.

    In an effort to encourage online, over the phone, and mail-in registration renewals, we will be temporarily waiving the “mail-back” fee for any motor vehicle renewal through the end of May.

    UPDATE:  The Florida Department of Revenue has extended the 2019 property tax payment due date from March 31,2020 to April 15, 2020.  To avoid fees and delinquent interest charges, payment may be made online, over the phone, by mail (postmarked), or in-office by April 15.

    Please call our office if you have additional questions at 863-402-6685.  Thank you.  

    Our office will be closed on Friday, April 10th, in observance of Good Friday.
    We will resume our normal business hours on Monday, April 13th.
