The Tax Collector serves as an agent of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. In this capacity, the Tax Collector is responsible for the sale of a variety of hunting and fishing permits. It is the Tax Collectors' duty to collect all monies from these sales and maintain the records associated with these transactions.

Hunting and Fishing licenses may be obtained at the Tax Collectors' Office or at various sport stores, bait and tackle shops, and retail stores.

All citizens who intend to hunt or fish in Florida require a valid license. The only exceptions to the law are:

  1. Residents 65 years of age and over are entitled to a complimentary Citizen Hunting and Fishing Certificate

  2. Children under the age of 16 are not required to have a license, however they must carry proof of age identification.

  3. Permanently and totally disabled residents can obtain a special exemption card. An authorized disability statement must be presented upon application. This permit is free.

  4. Residents who have been accepted by The Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services as a client for retardation and development services are exempt from the license requirements.

  5. A Florida resident who is a member of the U.S. armed forces and is not stationed in Florida is exempt from the license requirements while home on leave for 30 days or less. Proof of orders must be on the person while hunting or fishing.
