New Homeowner Help Initiative

Palm Beach County Tax Collector Anne M. Gannon and the Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches recently launched “A New Neighbor Kit” for Palm Beach County residents. The partnership is designed to put useful “how-to” information in the hands of new homeowners.

“Whether new to Palm Beach County or making a local move, every new homeowner will need to make several transactions with our office,” Gannon said. “We think working with the Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches is a great way to reach them.”

The New Neighbor Kit was created with the Realtors to distribute directly to their clients.

“Working with Anne and her staff on this kit has proved to be a beneficial tool for our 11,000 members, “said Barb Kozlow, president of the Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches. “RAPB strives to not only give its members all the tools necessary to succeed, but also provide critical information for homebuyers to make their transition into a new home as smooth as possible — this kit succeeds at both.”

Notable information in the kits include address changes for licenses, registering and titling out-of-state cars, registering and titling out-of-state boats, property tax information, opening a business in Palm Beach County, emergency hurricane preparedness, key contact numbers in Palm Beach County, a voter registration application and information about opening a SunPass account.

The New Neighbor Kits are available at or at one of three Realtors Association of the Palm Beach’s offices in Palm Beach County.
