Carole Jean Jordan, Tax Collector, Indian River County Restores most walk-in services effective May 4, 2020

MEDIA RELEASE:

WEDNESDAY – Carole Jean Jordan, Tax Collector, Indian River County has restored most services that require physical appearance in three of our four Tax Collector office locations for Indian River County residents and businesses. Road tests for driver licenses will not be available at this time, as it is not possible to create an environment compliant with social distancing guidance. Face masks compliant with CDC and federal and state guidelines covering both the nose and mouth are required for entry. Appointments must be made online prior to arrival for in-office services, only the person with an appointment and conducting business will be allowed in the building; the drive-thru remains open without appointment.

Jordan said, “as of Monday, May 4th we will be reinstating the majority of services. We are grateful for the cooperation and patience of Indian River County residents and appreciate the notes and calls of encouragement and understanding we have received during our temporary reductions in walk-in services. In-office services require an appointment, which can be made on our website or over the phone.”

She continued, “we thank Governor DeSantis for his leadership and quick action in encouraging preventative measures to reduce the spread of this contagious respiratory infection and look forward to seeing our neighbors in person at any of our locations. If you are a driver who is covered under the 30-day extension, we encourage you to make an appointment to update your driver license, commercial license, or state ID.”

At this time, in-office services will be provided by appointment only; appointments may be scheduled here or by calling 772.226.1338. The Indian River County Tax Collectors Office will resume its normal schedule of Monday to Friday 8am-5pm; extended worker-friendly hours are temporarily suspended in order to allow additional cleaning time overnight. If you have additional questions, please call our office at 772.226.1338 and one of our staff members will be happy to help.
