I've seen a couple of press releases over the last six months that said Florida CCW holders can renew their permits at the local tax collector's office. I got my renewal notification in the mail and thought I would try it out. After waiting in line for 20 minutes I was told that hasn't been fully implemented yet. There are only six offices in the whole state that are doing it on a trial basis.

Just thought I would let folks know so you don't waste your time.

Hmm--sorry to say it looks like you got some bad info from your tax office. There are quite a few tax offices in Florida that process CCW licenses (52 according to the website). If there is one nearby, it is worth a trip since it makes getting your license extremely easy--one stop for everything including finger prints. So best advice is to check and see if there is a Tax Office near by that does process CCW licenses.

I'm in Panama City. It's like they drew a 50 mile radius circle around my house and said, "No convenient renewal for you".

The Regional Dept or Ag Office in Fort Walton Beach does renewals as well as the Okaloosa County Tax Collectors office.
