MANATEE -- The Manatee County Tax Collector now offers customers a way to view office information on their smartphones, officials said.
“Our user-friendly application is an extension of some of our most popular features on our website, taxcollector.com,” said Tax Collector Ken Burton Jr.
The application pulls from existing information, such as frequently asked questions, customer information pieces, wait times and contacts, he said.
The mobile application contains direct links to an online payment system for those who would like to pay via their mobile device.
However, accepting payments directly through the mobile application is definitely in the strategic plan, officials said.
Among the information available via the app are media releases; lobby wait times; links to online payments; maps and locations for all offices, and the ability to contact the office from a one-touch call button.
The Manatee Tax Collector’s mobile application is available for both iOS and Android devices.
