The Walton County Tax Collector’s office has been monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely and will continue to do so through the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and state and local agencies. Today we identified the need to close operations at our Freeport location through March 31 due to COVID-19. Additionally, we are doing everything we can to protect the best interests of our community and our employees while ensuring you have access to the services we provide.


To help you with your service needs we kindly remind you of alternative methods to conduct business with our office. Our website www.waltontaxcollector.com is available 24 hours a day.


There are exterior drop boxes at our North Walton and South Walton locations and phone services are available as well.


Identification Card, Commercial Driver License, and Driver License expiration dates have been extended 30 days per Governor’s Executive Order 20-52, however this does not apply to existing restrictions or sanctions. The following processes have been implemented for the safety of our citizens and employees and to allow ample time to properly clean and disinfect our offices:


• Temporary suspension of all DL testing – including all driving, written, interpreter, CDL, and medical tests


• Temporary suspension of all Concealed Weapon transactions


• We encourage people that do not need to physically be in our office to not come in. Most of our services are available through www.waltontaxcollector.com


• During this time we will be serving Walton County residents only due to office capacity, potential overflow and staffing needs.
