Florida Tax Collectors

Tax Collectors in Florida are independent constitutional officers duly elected by their fellow citizens and taxpayers in their counties of residence. Tax Collectors deal with a variety of duties and responsibilities and provide a myriad of important public services that allow them to exercise valuable leadership roles in government. They direct, plan, organize, budget, set and implement policies which affect not only their local government, but also reach the state level as well.

Along with their own local involvement in personnel and financial management matters, Tax Collectors participate in the management of the executive branches of state government that include the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, and the Department of Revenue. It is the Tax Collector who views all these departments as a whole and accordingly is able to coordinate and analyze their collective impact.

When drafting tax legislation and establishing rules and regulations for carrying out laws regarding the collection of taxes, staff members from the various state departments along with state legislators draw heavily on the Tax Collectors' broad knowledge base.

Tax Collectors are the only locally elected officials who come into contact with almost every citizen.

Terms of Office : Tax Collectors are elected for four-year terms at the general election held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November and every four years thereafter.
