Tuesday, November 30th is the deadline for the 4% discount for property tax payments, but residents have plenty of time to pay using a variety of payment options.

“Our offices are closed November 25th and 26th in observance of Thanksgiving, and the last week of November is a very busy time in our offices, so customers should plan ahead,” said Sarasota County Tax Collector Barbara Ford-Coates. “To better serve our customers who like to hand deliver their payment, the annual property tax drive-thru service will return this year,” Ford-Coates added. On Monday and Tuesday, November 29th and 30th, customers can pay taxes without leaving their car from 8:30 am - 5:00 pm in Downtown Sarasota at the Terrace Building, and in Venice at the Anderson Administration Building. Payment at these drive-thru locations is by check only. Mrs. Ford-Coates noted, “Customers should arrive with the bottom portion of their tax bill and check already written to be placed in the drive-thru drop box.” At the Mid-County Office, 6100 Sawyer Loop Road, all forms of payment are accepted in the drive-thru lane.
