Most people hate to renew their driver’s licence or pay their property taxes. To make it worse, usually there is a double insult. Not only do you have to part with your hard earned money, but you also lose an hour of your life waiting in a long line. The average wait time at the Palm Beach County Tax Collector’s Office is 52 minutes!
Tax Collector Anne Gannon says there are ways to reduce your wait time and she has kicked off the “Take Back Your Hour” campaign. The easiest way to save time is to sign up online for certain appointments. Almost all in-office visits for your driver’s licence can be scheduled online. Those that take the time to make an appointment only have to wait on average 5 minutes! Gannon says you may not even have to go into the office. Many bills can be paid online from the comfort of your home.
If you do have to go to the Tax Collector’s Office, the best bet is to do your homework and make sure you have all of your paperwork. Take care of any problem with your driver’s license before go to the office. The local office will not be able to help you if there is a stop on your license from another state. All of this will not only help speed up your visit, but it will also make sure everyone else behind you in line can be seen faster. If all else fails, Gannon says the quietest time to visit her office is on a Tuesday or a Thursday between 10AM-12PM.
