NOTICE:  With the threat and possibility of the Covid-19 virus affecting the community, Taylor County is taking steps to ensure that our county services, as well as other services offered will go uninterrupted.  We’ve taken into consideration the guidance of local and state officials and decided to close the Taylor County Courthouse to the public beginning at 4:30 p.m. on March 17, 2020 until further notice.  There will be a drop box for any payments and/or correspondence located next to the front door of the Taylor County Courthouse.  If there is a need to fill out paperwork or speak to employees, you can still do so by calling that office and making arrangements over the phone.  We feel these steps need to be taken to ensure all services continue to work properly and we do not have any disruption to the citizens of Taylor County.
