Certified Copies of Florida Birth Certificates now available at the Tax Collector’s office.

TAMPA, FL – (April 17, 2014) – The Hillsborough County Tax Collector’s office recently partnered with the Florida Department of Health’s Bureau of Vital Statistics, to allow Florida-born citizens to get a certified copy of their birth certificate at the Tax Collector’s office.   This partnership will help make the process much easier since a birth certificate is one of the items needed to obtain a driver license or identification card.


“If a customer does not have their birth certificate, we don’t have to send them away to get it. We’ll be able to issue them a certified copy on the spot.” Belden stated. Birth certificates are currently being issued at the North Tampa office located at 3011 University Center Dr. Suite 150, in the Temple Terrace area.  Certified copies of FL birth certificates will be offered in our other full service branches by the end of September.


To get a certified copy of a FL birth certificate, customers will need to present a valid form of identification such as a driver license, Florida identification card, passport, military ID or any other acceptable government issued identification.  The cost of a certified birth certificate is $20.25. There is a $9.00 fee for any additional certificates issued for the same person processed at the same time.  Florida birth certificates may still be obtained through the Bureau of Vital Statistics and the Hillsborough County Health Department.  For more information, visit their website at  If you were not born in Florida and need to find out information on how to order a birth certificate from another state, visit
