Coronavirus Updates

The March 31st deadline for the payment of 2019 property taxes has been extended to April 15th. The Florida Department of Revenue issued an emergency order in response to COVID-19 extending the deadline. Property Tax Payments can be submitted online with an e-check (no fee!) or by credit/debit card (fees charged by the credit card processor do apply). You may also mail a personal check, money order, or cashier's check postmarked by April 15th. Delinquent penalties will accrue on all unpaid taxes on April 16th.

To the Citizens of Nassau County,

To minimize exposure to COVID-19 and help protect you and our employees, the Governor has recommended that all state facilities be closed to the public beginning Thursday, March 19th, until Sunday, April 19th. All regional state offices are currently closed to the public. We will reevaluate the need for an extension of this time frame (or a reduction) on Friday, April 3rd.

I have decided to keep my offices open for one more day - tomorrow, March 20th - to allow the general public to enter into the Tax Collector’s office to conduct their business. I am currently only allowing citizens of Nassau County to enter my offices and only 10 people in the lobby at a time.

Effective Monday, March 23rd, all Nassau County Tax Collector office locations will be closed to the public until further notice. The safety of our customers and staff is my highest priority. All customers can continue to complete transactions online at or by mail. Employees will continue to work answering the phones (if you have any questions) and processing the work we receive.

Please continue to practice social distancing and recommended best hygiene practices. Appreciate this time with your loved ones, because amidst all this fear and uncertainty, they are most important!

We will weather this storm together,

John M. Drew

To the good citizens of Nassau,

I strongly urge you to utilize all of our online services in lieu of visiting a local branch. These services can quickly and easily be completed online.

Thank you for helping keep our community as healthy as possible.

Yours in service, John M. Drew Tax Collector

At the direction of Governor Ron DeSantis, and in response to the current health emergency we are facing as we battle the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Executive Director Terry L. Rhodes has executed an Emergency Order. The Emergency Order extends all Florida driver licenses (including Florida Commercial Driver Licenses) and identification cards that will expire in the next 30 days. All Florida driver licenses and identification cards set to expire in the next 30 days will be granted a 30-day extension beyond their current expiration date.

  • The Executive Order, accessible here, authorizes the following:
  •   • Extends the effective period of all driver licenses and identification cards that will expire between March 16, 2020, and April 15, 2020, for 30 days.
  •   • Waives the delinquent renewal fees during the extension period for these driver licenses and identification cards.

We are suggesting that Floridians traveling out of the state print the Executive Order and carry it with their driver license. A copy of this Emergency Order is available on the Department’s website.

  • All road testing is suspended at this time due to health concerns. There are two state driving schools in North Florida that I am aware of that may be able to assist with your road test. Their contact info is below.
