Tax Collector Launches New Site

The Tax Collector’s Office announced today that it has launched a new website and brand identity.  According to the Tax Collector’s Director of Technology and Organizational Development, Shane Sapp, the site more closely reflects the culture and direction of the organization.

“This new website demonstrates our dedication to our mission, vision, and values.  It is more than a website launch, it’s the unveiling of a whole new brand identity for us,” said Sapp, “We want the public to know that we are not just a ‘typical’ government agency.  We are innovative, we value professionalism, and we want to reach beyond the preconceived notions about government and provide an experience online and in-person that is second to none.”

The site displays a modern, clean, and organized look while expanding on the information provided to the public.  It also features a responsive design which allows for customers on mobile devices and desktop computers alike to share the same experience.

“We are incredibly proud of this new site and our brand identity,” Sapp commented, “This is truly state-of-the-art, and we couldn’t be more excited!”
