Florida Concealed Weapon License Application and Renewal Fees Reduced

 

Vero Beach, Fl.— Individuals who wish to apply for or renew a Florida concealed weapon license will save $5 beginning Saturday, July 1. Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam worked with the Florida Legislature to bring the application fee down from $124.00 to $119.00 and the renewal fee down from $62 to $57.00. Concealed weapon licenses are valid for seven years.

 

The Indian River County Tax Collector’s Office is authorized to take fingerprints, photographs and accept applications on behalf of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Same day renewals are now available for eligible Florida residents at the Indian River County Tax Collector’s Main and Sebastian Office. Applications are still processed by the department.

 

In 2014, Commissioner Putnam worked with the Florida Legislature to offer a first-of-its kind partnership with tax collectors’ offices. The Indian River County Tax Collector’s Main Office was the first Tax Collectors Office in the State to offer this service. There are currently nearly 1.8 million concealed weapon licenses in Florida. In the past year, the department has received nearly 450,000 concealed weapon license applications, of which nearly 120,000 have been received via tax collectors’ offices.

 

For more information or to schedule your appointment, please email us at CWLA@IRCTax.com or call (772)226-1430.

Traveling throughout Florida can be nearly as fun as getting to your destination. During the holiday and vacation seasons, Florida’s roads can be some of the busiest in the country.

Tire Safety and Vehicle Preparation

 

According to the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), drivers in the United States put more than 2,900 billion miles on their tires each year with approximately 11,000 tire-related crashes. Tires are your vehicle’s first line of defense on the road. Click here for tips on tire safety.

 

Buckle Up – Seatbelt Usage for Drivers and Passengers

 

The Dori Slosberg and Katie Marchetti Safety Belt Law, effective June 30, 2009, requires that all drivers, all front seat passengers and all passengers under the age of 18, fasten their safety belts in Florida. Every time you get in a vehicle, no matter where you are sitting, buckle up. That click reduces your risk of being injured or killed in a crash by almost 50 percent.

Hurricane Season Preparedness and Inclement Weather Driving Safety

 

Given its location and miles of coastline, Florida has seen more direct hits from hurricanes than any other state in the U.S. As residents move to the state and the population grows, many Floridians may be unprepared for such severe weather.

 

This year, get prepared early:

 

  • know your evacuation routes
  • make sure your vehicle is properly maintained
  • register your Emergency Contact Information (ECI)
  • be sure you know where to check for road closures
  • study up on best driving practices in inclement weather in case you have to drive.
