TAX COLLECTOR EXTENDS MAIL-IN DISCOUNT


TAX COLLECTOR EXTENDS MAIL-IN DISCOUNT


11/30/99 - BARTOW

Joe G. Tedder, Tax Collector for Polk County, Florida, has announced that the fifty cent discount which customers receive for mailing in their vehicle registration renewals will now also be extended to those individuals who place "DROP BOXES."

The "DROP BOXES" are located in the Tax Collector's Main Office in Bartow, Bartow Tag Office, Lakeland Branch Office, Lake Wales Branch Office, Haines City Tag Office and Winter Haven "Legion" Tag Agency.

Citing cost savings and convenience, Tedder first applied the mail-in discount back in June. Since then vehicle registration renewal mail-in Tedder stated, "We are always looking for ways to improve service and keep costs down for our customers. In some cases, it appeared more convenient to use our "DROP BOX" than a mail box. For those customers, we wanted to provide every opportunity to receive the 50 cent discount."
