Proof of Residency

It is your responsibility to prove that you are a permanent resident or the owner of real property within the incorporated boundaries of the City of Clearwater.

In addition to your Florida vehicle registration (per rules and regulations), a Florida picture I.D. with your current address and any two (2) of the following documents will be sufficient:

  1. A current voter’s identification card showing the “CITY” as “CW”. This indicates it is an address within the incorporated boundaries of the City of Clearwater. If the section marked “CITY” has an “X” or other letters, then it is a non-resident address.
  2. Any utility bill less than 60 days old that shows your name and a City of Clearwater address as the service address. “Utility” includes electric, telephone, water, or vision cable bills.
  3. A current tax bill (or notice) in your name showing a City of Clearwater address.
  4. A notarized or registered deed, mortgage or lease showing your name as the owner or occupant at that City of Clearwater address.
  5. A notarized statement from an adult relative that you are a full time resident in their home and any other two proofs from above showing that their home is in the City of Clearwater.
  6. Mail with postmark less than 60 days old, showing a City of Clearwater address.
