Tax Collector Explains Delays, Parking Issues at Lakeland Office

Joe Tedder takes to Facebook to discuss delays at the Tax Collector’s Office on Massachusetts Avenue in Lakeland:

  • The underlying cause – more volume vs. a business model that restricts hiring.
  • What’s being done – an anticipated employee lot will free up customer spaces; a new appointment-only system for driver licenses will reduce waits.
  • What customers can do – use online and mail options when possible; ask legislators to share more of the fees with tax collectors.
