TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Tax collectors offices across Leon County are re-opening with new safety protocols in place.
Customers and employees are required to wear face masks and maintain six feet social distancing.
At the office on South Monroe Street, customers say just getting into the building proves to be its own challenge.
Some customers said they arrived to find lines wrapped around the building.
"My experience today: The lines are very, very long," said Jakerrius Herring, a Leon County resident. "But it's very chaotic today because you have all of the people here since we need anything. So course we're going to have a long line."
To help maintain order, clerks are providing appointment cards on a first come first serve basis. Even with those cards, some have experienced a two hour wait, so if this is on your to do list, plan accordingly.
The offices are also operating under limited hours, from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
