The Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s Office, including its five service centers, will reopen to the public on Monday, May 4 at 8:30 a.m.
All office locations will limit the number of customers allowed inside and adhere to social distancing protocols, in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines. Designated wait areas and markers will help keep customers and staff a safe distance apart. The office strongly recommends that the public wear face protective coverings when entering all office locations.
“We are committed to serve the public in a safe and responsible manner,” Palm Beach County Property Appraiser Dorothy Jacks said. “Our office has taken a number of steps to mitigate contact between our employees, including staggering work times and establishing a period between those shifts for staff to disinfect work spaces and exit before the next group of employees enters the office.”
“It is important for us to resume office operations, continue the work of the 2020 tax roll and provide assistance to the taxpayers of Palm Beach County in a secure and prudent fashion,” Jacks added.
The office is in daily communication with its county partners and is working with them to ensure a clean and safe work environment for all.
The Property Appraiser Public Access (PAPA) web site has always been known for its user friendly, online tools and resources. Jacks encourages the public to conduct their business online rather than an in-person visit, by utilizing the services at www.pbcgov.org/PAPA or contacting the office by phone at (561) 355-3230 or e-mail at PAO@pbcgov.org.
