BARTOW TAX OFFICE WAS OPEN ON NEW YEAR'S EVE


BARTOW TAX OFFICE WAS OPEN ON NEW YEAR'S EVE




01/07/11 - BARTOW

Despite the fact that all government offices were closed on New Year's Eve, the Tax Collector's Bartow office was open on December 31st to serve customers unaware of the holiday closing.

"Our staff recognized that many taxpayers would wait until Friday and not be aware of the local government holiday schedule. Our hunch was right," stated Randy Hunt, Assistant Tax Collector. A volunteer crew opened up the Bartow office and ended up serving 737 taxpayers on Friday, the fourth busiest day in the year for that office.
