Rhonda Skipper, Walton County Tax Collector, would like to share the following information concerning the COVID-19 Pandemic and how we are adjusting to the situation.
- Tax Collectors are in discussion with the Department of Revenue regarding the extension of property tax deadlines. This would be announced by an Executive Order from Governor Ron DeSantis, hopefully this week.
- Pursuant to Executive Order 20-52, issued March 15, 2020 by Governor DeSantis, please observe the following:
o Extend the effective period of driver licenses and identification cards with expiration dates of March 16, 2020, to April 15, 2020, for thirty (30) days.
(Be advise, this does not include suspensions or revocations.)
o Waive the delinquent renewal fees during the extension period for these driver licenses and identification cards.
o We are available to assist our CDL holders at 850-892-8121
- Tax Collectors across the State of Florida are partnering with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles in extending expiring commercial driver licenses (CDL) and waiving commercial truck hours-of-service regulations and other related regulations so emergency supplies, equipment, commodities and resources for the state’s response to COVID-19 can continue deliveries throughout the state.
