Carole Jean Jordan, Tax Collector, Indian River County has temporarily suspended most services that require a physical appearance in the four Tax Collector office locations.

Services have been evaluated individually based on the need for a resident to appear in the office physically and the amount of contact required between Tax Collector office staff and residents.

Jordan said, “as of Thursday, March 19th, we will be suspending service through the end of March for TWIC card applications, fingerprinting for State of Florida and fingerprinting for CDL/Hazmat designations. Additionally, road tests for driver licenses will not be available and TSA pre-check appointments will be limited.”

She continued, “due to the growing number of confirmed Coronavirus cases in Florida, we are doing our part to keep our staff and residents safe.

Normal cleaning has been increased to ensure a cleaner environment; however, we ask that people who do not need to physically appear at our office during the month of March to please wait until we resume full servicing.
