Effective 10/6/2014: Individuals who wish to obtain a Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearm License may submit their application electronically at the Main office location of the Nassau County Tax Collector, located at 86130 License Road, Fernandina Beach, FL.  

The Concealed Weapon License Application services provided at our Main Office is designed to allow an applicant to complete the entire application process quickly and conveniently. The Concealed Weapons License Application service is intended to streamline the application screening and review process. Thereby reducing the time it takes the Department of Agriculture to issue the license once the application arrives electronically in Tallahassee. Because applications submitted at our office will be pre-screened for completion prior to their being forwarded to Tallahassee, there is less likelihood that the application will include errors or omissions that will result in processing delays.

IMPORTANT: Please note these services are available by appointment only.

What should I bring with me to the Tax Collector’s Office?

You should have the following items/documents when you arrive at our office for your appointment:
  • A picture ID. A driver license or state-issued identification card is perfectly acceptable.
  • A copy of a training document or other certificate that confirms that you are proficient with a firearm.
  • A personal check, cash, cashier's check, or money order.  Customers may also pay by credit card or debit card.
  • If you have ever been arrested, you should bring certified copies of the court documentation reflecting the final disposition of the charge(s) filed.
  • If born outside the United States, or if you are a permanent legal resident alien, you will need to bring official documentation that confirms citizenship status.
