New Lee Vista Office will Open February 19 at 8:30 am
New Office will Create Additional 20 Full Time and 10 Part Time Jobs
The Orange County Tax Collector’s Lee Vista branch office will relocate to a larger, newly-built facility at Lee Vista Blvd. and SR 417, completing a yearlong office restructuring, Orange County Tax Collector Scott Randolph announced. The move will expand the tax collector’s presence in growing Southeast Orange County, both tripling the number of front-line employees to serve the public and the overall square footage of the tax collector’s building.
“Simply put, after eleven years we’ve outgrown our current space on Lee Vista Boulevard,” Tax Collector Scott Randolph said. “That’s why we’re so excited to open a new office in Lee Vista that will keep pace with the rapid growth in Southeast Orange County and the Lake Nona area, especially.”
Since the current Lee Vista branch office was built, Orange County’s population has increased by 260,000 residents.
As part of the final phase of a yearlong office restructuring effort, the current 7,000-square-foot branch office at 8185 Lee Vista Blvd. in Orlando will close to the public on Thursday, February 13 at 5:00 pm.
Tax collector staff and officials from the state Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will be on site through Tuesday, February 18 to operate the state’s mobile driver’s license bus, known as FLOW (Florida Licensing on Wheels), for customers who visit the closed location. The FLOW bus is equipped to provide limited driver’s license, state ID and vehicle registration services; however, customers are strongly encouraged to visit one of the other five Orange County branch offices.

The new 21,000-square-foot facility, which will be the second largest motor vehicle office in the state, will open to the public at 9:00 am on Wednesday, February 19.
The new office, just 2.5 miles east of the current branch, is located at the northeast corner of Lee Vista Blvd. and SR 417 (6050 Wooden Pine Dr., Suite 100, Orlando), and will feature 52 workstations, compared to 17 at the current location; 236 customer and employee parking spaces, compared to 42 at the current location; and will create 20 new full time and 10 new part time jobs.
The Orange County Tax Collector’s Office processed more than 2.6 million transactions last year, including more than 468,000 driver’s license, 400,000 tag and title, and 96,000 written and road test transactions in person across six branch offices.
Under Phases One and Two of the restructuring last year, the tax collector’s West Colonial and Winter Garden branches relocated to the West Oaks Mall in Ocoee, creating the largest motor vehicle office in the state.
