How the Tax Collector's Office is Funded
The Tax Collector's Office is not funded by tax dollars. It is a fee-based office. The fees collected for the services provided are used to fund the operating budget which is approved by the Florida Department ofRevenue. The work volume and cost-effective operations results in fee revenues well in excess of the budget. This “additional revenue" is returned to the local government agencies, including the county, in proportion to the amount they pay. As a result, these local agencies receive tax collection services at low cost and the community is better served.
