Welcome

David Jordan, Tax Collector

It is an honor to serve as your Lake County Tax Collector. I would like to publicly thank Governor Scott for his confidence in confirming my position. The encouragement and sources of strength provided by my faith, family and friends, coupled with the privilege of Mr. McKee’s leadership and tutelage for 19 years have more than prepared me for this role. His dedication to mentoring our team will undoubtedly ensure the continued success of the office.

We remain diligent and focused on carrying out the fiduciary responsibilities of the office, while continuously enhancing the service levels and systems functionality which were constructed on a sound and principled foundation built by Mr. McKee.

I am committed to being a sound steward of your time and money, and I will faithfully execute the constitutional and ministerial responsibilities of the Lake County Tax Collector’s office. Please call, write or visit any of our service centers if you have questions, comments or suggestions.
