Okaloosa County's annual tax certificate sale accomplished something rarely done in Florida: all tax certificates were sold.

Okaloosa is the only Florida county to achieve this mark through an online sale platform this year, Tax Collector Ben Anderson said. 

The May 31 tax certificate sale produced $5,805,769.67 in revenue for the Okaloosa County Taxing Authorities from 3,872 certificates sold. 

Over $193,000,000 in 2013 real estate and tangible personal property taxes have been distributed to date, according to Tax Administrator Justin Gordon.

Anderson credits the success to workshops held throughout the county.
