On reopening on May 1, 2020, the Jefferson County Courthouse and its satellite locations will operate as follows, as recommended by state health orders:

  • New plexi-glass shields are being added to all our public facing counters such as the Department of Revenue and Tax Assessors office

  • Social distancing is required for those waiting for services.
  • Employees and customers will comply with the City of Birmingham’s ordinance requiring the wearing of face coverings in public.
  • County departments are still encouraging tele-commuting for employees where possible.

Please note the state Department of revenue extended tag renewals for March and April to May 15 so you still have time to take care of those items and they can still be done online, visit and look at the top of the page for Frequently Asked Questions on how to do business online with the County.
