Marcus Pointe Office Issuing Florida Birth Certificates with Related Tax Collector Transactions
Janet Holley, Escambia County Tax Collector, is pleased to announce a new service available to the public. The Marcus Pointe office, in partnership with the Florida Department of Health, is issuing Florida certified birth certificates to customers who are in need of this documentation to complete their driver license and identification card transactions. Requests not related to a tax collector transaction are not accepted at this time. Birth certificates can only be issued to: the registrant (the child named on the record) if of legal age (18) or the parent(s) listed on the birth record.
The applicant (self or parent) will complete an application and provide valid photo identification. Acceptable forms of identification include: driver license, identification card, passport, and/or military identification card.
Ms. Holley notes that birth record purchases are non-refundable. The cost for the certified FL birth certificate is $17.25; additional copies of the same record purchased at the same time cost $10.00 each. These fees are separate from any driver license or identification fees that are charged.
For more information, contact the tax collector’s office at 438-6500, ext. 3252.
