As of today, May 1, 2020, Jackson County Government offices have resumed most operations and reopened to the public. The County will be following CDC, Federal and State guidelines as well as best practices to protect its employees and the public as we transact business.
We strongly encourage the public to take advantage of our online options to do business with the County. This includes the ability to renew vehicle registrations, pay property taxes, obtain a business license or building permit and file property tax exemptions. Additionally, a lot of these transactions can be handled by mail. Please visit the homepage on the County website to find links to the various County departments and to get additional information.
