How is the Tax Collector's Office Funded?
The Tax Collector’s Office is a fee-based office. That means we fund ourselves with no additional cost to taxpayers. At the end of each year, all surplus budget revenue is returned back to the taxpayer to help fund public education, public safety and other services in the community.
The Tax Collector’s Office is responsible for the collection and disbursement of $2.6 billion in Orange County tax revenues and Florida motor vehicle transactions. The Office performs 2.6 million transactions per year and has more than 300 employees across 7 offices.
At the end of each fiscal year, Tax Collector Scott Randolph returns all surplus budget revenue to the County and other taxing authorities that pay a fee for property tax collections. For Fiscal Year 2019, the Tax Collector returned $23,038,823.87 to Orange County, including $1,382,771.19 to Orange County Fire and $409,428.82 to the Orange County Library Board. Those dollars support Orange County Public Schools, programs in our libraries, Fire and Rescue squads in our community and many other projects.
