Effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020 all Okaloosa County Tax Collector Office lobby locations will be Closed to the Public until further advised.
While office locations will be closed to the public, customers can continue to process transactions online at OkaloosaTax.com, by phone at 850-651-7300, through the mail, or by drop box.
According to Tax Collector Ben Anderson, “In light of the current public health situation regarding the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), it’s in the best interest of the office to close to direct public contact until further advised.”
“By closing our office lobbies, it will help limit potential exposure of our staff and the public.” Anderson continues, “In anticipation of an influx of calls, we’ve worked to bolster our phone operations. Customers want to talk directly to a live customer service agent when conducting their business over the phone; and that’s the type of service we offer.”
Customers wishing to reach the Tax Collector by phone should dial 850-651-7300 or #TAX (#829) from their mobile phone. In addition to closing office lobbies to the public, all appointments for driving tests, concealed weapons permit, hazmat, and passports are canceled until further notice.
