Property Tax Payment

If your Palm Beach County property taxes are escrowed and paid by your mortgage company, our office expects to receive those payments by November 30, 2022, and will post them to your account as soon as possible.  Please allow our office 3-5 business days to process those payments before you contact our office to verify payment.  Should you have questions about those payments, please contact your mortgage lender directly for payment status.

We greatly appreciate your patience as our staff works diligently to post payments as quickly as possible.

Drivers who have never held —or do not have in their possession— a driver license from any other state, country or jurisdiction, must complete a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course before applying for a license in Florida.

Driver Education Licensing Assistance Program (DELAP) courses offered by some county school boards may substitute for this requirement.

Contact the local school board for further information. Drivers under 21 years of age who have received a notice of suspension for driving with a blood alcohol level (BAL) of .02 to .05 must complete a TLSAE course in order to reinstate their driver license on a hardship. A hardship license is a license restricted to “business” or “employment” purposes only.
