The Okaloosa County Tax Collector’s Crestview and Fort Walton Beach branches are now another resource where Florida-born residents can purchase birth certificates.
"Until now, the Okaloosa County Health Department was the only local option where residents could obtain their Florida birth certificate,” Tax collector Ben Anderson said.
The pilot program, through the Florida Bureau of Vital Statistics, only allows issuance of most Florida birth certificates by an authorized individual.
The cost is $10 per individual plus a $6.25 service fee.
