Responsibilities of the Treasurer

The County Treasurer's major responsibility is the collection of various taxes. The most noted and largest dollar amounts collected in taxes come from Real Property Taxes. Other taxes collected by the County Treasurer are Manufactured Home, Inheritance, Hotel-Motel and Special Assessments.

The County Treasurer is the collector and safekeeper of all taxes collected in taxing districts such as schools, cities, townships and villages. As the tax collector for these various districts, 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 tax monies collected. The taxing districts operate from the dollars collected by the County Treasurer.
