The Florida Tax Collectors Association is a collaborative network of Florida’s 67 Tax Collectors that work to provide leadership, legislative advocacy, and shared partnership to support the state-constitution officer in each county political subdivision and the families they serve.
Our network continually helps to influence sound public policy on behalf of Floridians, providing a local solution that works the most effectively for each citizen. We hold ourselves to the public office in which we individually serve. We provide transparency, accountability and tirelessly work to keep the public trust – the trust of the neighbors who elected us.
With this in mind, our members focus on customer service. Last year alone, we served more than half of Florida’s 20 million residents with in-person and online solutions.
We carry out various state services at the local level, including:
- Collection of taxes and assessments (ad valorem taxes, non-ad valorem assessments, and tangible personal property taxes)
- Registration of motor vehicles, mobile homes and vessels
- Applications for title for motor vehicles, mobile homes and vessels
- Issuance of hunting and fishing licenses
- Issuance of driver licenses
- Application for concealed weapons licenses
- Concealed weapons license renewals
- Issuance of birth certificates
- Making application to vote

Bringing more convenience and efficiency to the licensing process is a common sense approach that benefits the taxpayer and I’m proud to have sponsored the legislation that makes it possible.
