Where liberty dwells, there is my country.
Benjamin Franklin, signer of the Declaration of Independence
Happy Independence Day! As we celebrate with our families and friends, join us in continuing to pray for our military and their loved ones. May we always honor their service to the United States of America, and remain grateful for how they ensure our independence.

Solicitation AlertWe would like to inform Pasco County citizens of a revived solicitation effort affecting public records. While this solicitation is not illegal, it may mislead customers to overpay for their records. Knowing the price and services offered by the Clerk & Comptroller's Office can help protect your wallet.
The Florida Attorney General's Office recently reported the solicitation practice. However, in Pasco County, citizens have fallen prey to this practice in the past, see prior Solicitation Alert. The practice consists of a company offering to sell homeowners a certified copy of their Deed for prices ranging from $50 to $100.
Be advised: The true cost of a certified document is only $1.00 per recorded page and $2.00 for certification. Moreover, deeds and other public records can be viewed and printed, as an unofficial copy, for free at www.pascoclerk.com under the Online Services tab. Additionally, information contained in the Property Profile can be obtained from the Pasco County Property Appraiser's website. These public records can be viewed and printed without a cost at www.appraiser.pascogov.com.

Official Records and Protecting Your Personal InformationFlorida Statute mandates that the Clerk & Comptroller enable Internet access to Official Records (section 28.2221, Fla. Stat. (2011)). Your social security number and other sensitive information may appear in the Official Records due to the preparation of documents in the past. The Clerk & Comptroller is committed to protecting your sensitive data from public view.
The Clerk & Comptroller's Office has electronically reviewed its Internet documents (over 14 million pages) and blocked recognized sensitive data. Due to various issues, such as poor document quality or handwritten items, the system could have missed some sensitive information.
