Beginning July 19, the Dade City branch of the Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office will accept applications for new concealed weapons permits as well as renewal applications for existing permits. During regular business hours customers will be able to visit the Dade City location in the East Pasco Government Center (14236 – 6th Street, Room 110, Dade City 33523) to apply for a concealed weapons permit/ renewal. Fingerprints, photographs and related services will all be available to process new/ renewal applications. For the past year the same services have been available in the Tax Collector’s Gulf Harbors location, which primarily serves customers from the West side of Pasco.
“As tax collector I am committed to improving customer service in every way I possibly can,” states Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “Processing concealed weapons permit applications is an important service that until last year was carried out by state-level workers. Pasco’s tax collector office in Gulf Harbors was one of the first offices allowed by the state to provide this service. Due to the excellent work of our staff and the need expressed by the community, we are now able to provide this service on both sides of Pasco County. New applicants and those seeking renewal of their permit will be able to visit our Dade City office and quickly go through the application/ renewal process. The application/ renewal will be sent to Tallahassee for approval and issuance.”

On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM. This service is not available on Saturdays at this time. Appointments for concealed weapons permit applications are not required.
