The Palm Beach County Tax Collector's website indicates:
"Property tax search and payment functions will be inactivated and unavailable effective 10-16-12 through 6:00 a.m. 11-1-12. This is a system requirement as our office loads the new tax data and completes final preparations for the 2012 Property Tax Season.
We apologize for any inconvenience."
During this period, title agents may email firstname.lastname@example.org and FLTA members report that the collector's office has been responding within a day or so.
Because of past problems with the accuracy of information from this office (which we hope will be corrected by this upgrade), please continue to follow any special instructions from your insurers.
