Florida residents can now renew and receive their statewide Concealed Weapon License at the Crestview and Niceville branches of the Okaloosa County Tax Collector’s Office.

"Residents already have the ability to renew their license with our offices, but have to wait to receive the license card in the mail," Okaloosa County Tax Collecter Ben Anderson said. "With this new service, residents will be able to bring their renewal notice to our Crestview or Niceville office and walk out with their renewed license card that day."

Applicants need to make an appointment for this service. Call 651-7300 or go to www.okaloosatax.com to schedule one. 

Anderson welcomes all current license holders and future applicants, including those who reside outside of Okaloosa County, where services may not be available or the wait times are too long.
