Manatee County Tax Collector Announces
Concealed Weapon License Services Available

Appointments available at

Bradenton, FL – The Manatee County Tax Collector's Office now accepts applications for an original or renewal of a concealed weapon license at our Driver License Office, 904 301 Blvd. W., Bradenton.

Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam partnered with Florida Tax Collectors to pass legislation allowing Tax Collectors to offer Florida residents a more efficient concealed weapon license application and renewal process.

The Manatee County Tax Collector's staff is authorized to take fingerprints, photographs and accept applications and process renewals on behalf of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Applications are still processed by the Department.

"Concealed weapon license services have been on our strategic plan for nearly three years," said Tax Collector Ken Burton, Jr. "We look forward to providing this service to our constituents who have had to go to other counties to complete their applications or renew their licenses."

Services are by appointment only (no walk-ins). For more information or to schedule an appointment, visit
