What our customers say…

Theresa K.

I recently visited the Alachua County Tax Collector’s Office (SW location – just off of Archer Road). The staff including a new Tax Agent and her Director were all very professional and wonderful to deal with. Their efficient handling of my specific needs were very much appreciated!

I have been a patron of the Alachua County Tax Collector’s office, Downtown, for 11 and a half years. As part of my job as a courier, I have had to come in as often as twice a day (especially during tax season). I have been treated courteously and quickly every time I have been there. If I have ever had a problem, it was addressed immediately and always to my satisfaction. I would recommend all of the Agents at the Downtown Branch. I love them all!

Their ability to work effectively and smoothly was very much appreciated; So was their kindness and pleasant demeanor. All I can say is that I actually enjoyed an experience that usually ranges from dull to onerous.
