Duval County Tax Collector Shuts Down In-Person Services; Online Still Available

Florida license plates

Getting a Florida specialty license plate in-person is among the services impacted by the closure of all Duval County Tax Collector offices.

A variety of services such as paying your property taxes and getting new license plates without involving a dealer can now only be done online or by mail in Duval County.

The Duval County Tax Collector has closed all walk-in services until further notice due to the spread of the coronavirus.

"The health and safety of our employees and that of the community is at the forefront of all we do,” Tax Collector Jim Overton said in an email to WJCT News. “While our physical offices will be closed, we will assign more employees to our call center, online and mail processing so we can still provide vital services to our customers in a limited capacity.”

Among the services available online are:

For people purchasing or trading in new or used vehicles, car dealers' work is continuing through the Electronic Filing System (EFS).
Non-EFS dealers can call 904-255-5700 for more information.  That number can also be used by the general public for any tax collector-service related question.

Additional information is available on the Duval County Tax Collector’s website. Direct emails can be sent to:
