Trust Account

A trust account is a convenient method of payment for motor vehicle transactions.  The trust account operates like a traditional checking account. Funds are deposited into the account and motor vehicle fees are deducted as transactions are processed at the Tax Collector's office. Statements showing your account activity and balance are mailed monthly.  Establishing a trust account eliminates the need for couriers to have a check or cash on hand.
 
To open a trust account, simply click here for an application. Please submit the completed application along with a check for your initial deposit to:
 
Hillsborough County Tax Collector
Attention Darlene Coleman
601 E. Kennedy Blvd., 14th Floor
Tampa, Florida 33602
 
To close a trust account, submit a request on your company letterhead signed by an authorized representative. The request must include the representative's printed name and contact information. A check for the remaining balance will be mailed to the address indicated on the account unless an address correction is included with your request.
 
For questions regarding an escrow account, contact Darlene Coleman at (813) 635-5212.
