Welcome to the

Tax Collector's Office
for Polk County

serving our citizens


ATTENTION: Due to staffing shortages those seeking walk-in and telephone services at the Tax Collector’s Office are experiencing extended wait-times. During these conditions, we appreciate the public’s patience and understanding. Meanwhile, please use online and mail-in services whenever possible. 

STATE COMPUTER PROBLEMS: Our office is required to use the STATE’s new computer system to conduct motorist services, including driver licensing. The new system has been unreliable, causing slow-downs and outages, which has led to increased wait-times for all our walk-in customers. Until the STATE resolves these intermittent issues, we highly encourage people to use our mail and online payment services whenever possible. Meanwhile, we thank you for your understanding and patience regarding these events.
