Joe G. Tedder, Tax Collector for Polk County is continuing in his effort to warn motorists not to use "etagsdirect.com," a company that advertises on internet search engines for online tag renewals.
Back in February of 2015, the Tax Collector's Office first received complaints about etagsdirect.com overcharging for online tag renewals and failing to provide refunds to motorists who believed they had been duped into using their services. Since then, complaints have been coming into the Tax Collector's Office for Polk County about etagsdirect.com. Moreover, complaints about etagsdirect.com also continue to crop up in other counties all around the State of Florida.
Tedder is advising people to avoid etagsdirect.com and instead go to official tax collector websites, such as www.PolkTaxes.com, to avoid excessive fees and possible lost renewals.
...
Joe G. Tedder, CFC, Tax Collector for Polk County, advises taxpayers who have not paid their 2015 property taxes, to consider mailing in their property tax payments. That's because Thursday, March 31st is not only the end of the month, but it is the deadline for the timely payment of 2015 real estate and tangible personal property taxes, which makes it one of the busiest days in the Tax Collector's Service Centers.
"The end of the month is always a busy day in our offices," Tedder states, "and now with our offices serving driver license customers and continuing to serve those individuals needing to renew their registrations, we are reminding the public that there are multiple ways to conduct their transaction without having to visit our Service Centers."
Recently the Tax Collector's Office launched a new landing page to educate taxpayers and to make it easier to make payments using online and mail-in options. "ClickorStick.com, makes online payments a click away," stated Joe Tedder. Tedder also said that when mailing in payments, the postmark on the envelope date-stamps the payment, and taxpayers can still mail their property tax payments by Thursday, March 31 and avoid penalties and late charges.
Taxpayers have the option of making payments online, by mail, or in person. Mail-in payments should be addressed to:
Joe G. Tedder, Tax Collector for Polk County P.O. Box 1189 Bartow, Florida 33831-1189
Mail-in payments may be made by way of a check or money order made payable to Joe G. Tedder, Tax Collector.

Tedder adds, "In taking over driver licensing and other duties for the state, our staff has experienced increased training requirements.

Tax Collector Joe Tedder is estimating over 22,000 customers will come through their offices the last two weeks of December, making it the busiest time of the year at the Tax Collector's Office. December 31 is the deadline for a 3% property tax discount, as well as mobile home and heavy truck registration renewals. In addition, service centers will also be serving driver license customers, many of whom are students out for winter vacation and seeking permits. And, due to the season, holiday closings will reduce the hours of operation for walk-in services.
"All these factors create the perfect storm of high traffic through our service centers this time of year. Luckily, taxpayers have other options to avoid long lines," states Tedder. Tedder and his team have been busy this fall, spreading the word about their easy, online payment portal, www.ClickOrStick.com, where taxpayers can go and conduct many of their tax payments and renewal transactions. And now, all four service centers are offering driver license services.
