The Treasurer's Office operates as the BANK for County funds. The County Treasurer's major responsibility is the collection of various taxes. The two most noted and largest dollar amounts collected in taxes come from Real Property Taxes and Personal Property Taxes. 

Other taxes collected by the County Treasurer are Manufactured Home, Inheritance, Hotel/Motel and Special Assessments. To assist taxpayers, the County Treasurer offers a prepay program that enables taxpayers to divide their taxes over 10 monthly payments.  Taxpayers MUST be current to take part in this escrow prepay program.

DIVISIONS
  • Administrative Tax Collection Division

  • Delinquent Tax Collection Division

The County Treasurer is the collector and safe keeper of all taxes collected in taxing districts such as schools, cities, townships and villages. The County Treasurer must efficiently and effectively account for all monies collected in these districts in a timely manner. The faster the tax dollars can be accounted for, the faster the taxing districts can receive their income from the tax monies collected. The taxing districts operate from the dollars collected by the County Treasurer. 

The County Treasurer receives all monies collected by various other county departments for fees and keeps a record of these deposits. Daily financial statements of these deposits are prepared and submitted to the County Auditor. Monthly financial statements must be prepared and balanced with the County Auditor. Also, the County Treasurer redeems all warrants (checks) issued by the County Auditor.  Top of page
