Pasco tax collector to sell birth certificates

Pasco County's tax offices are set to begin selling birth certificates for Florida –born customers.

A government-issued birth certificate is a required part of the federal "Real I.D. Act" to obtain or renew a driver's license or a state identification card. Customers may also need their Florida birth certificate for any number of reasons.

"We are constantly striving to make it as easy as possible for our customers to comply with the needs of the federal mandates regarding identification," Tax Collector Mike Fasano said in a news release.

Customers who were born in Florida and who wish to purchase a birth certificate can visit any tax collector office in Pasco. Customers will be given an application. If they are under 18, a parent must sign the application. The cost for the first certificate is $18.25, with additional copies for $8.00 each. There is no limit to the number of certificates an individual may purchase.

Before purchasing the certificate the customer must present a valid driver license, state-issued ID, passport, military ID or any other government-issued ID.

The Pasco County Tax Collector maintains offices across the county. For addresses and hours of operation, visit www.pascotaxes.com. The tax collector also has a dedicated call center which can assist in answering any questions about birth certificate sales and other services. Call (727) 847-8165, (813) 236-6020 or (352) 521-4360.

    Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier's return from the hip injury that sidelined him since June 8 could have gone better Thursday in Port Charlotte. He broke two bats and went hitless in two at bats while playing for the Class A Charlotte Stone Crabs.
