Determine whether the Town Clerk (Clerk) recorded, deposited, remitted and reported collections in a timely and accurate manner.
- We reviewed 356 tax payments totaling $520,000 and found they were recorded properly and deposited intact but were not always recorded or remitted to the appropriate parties in a timely manner.
- Clerk fees were recorded accurately, properly reported and remitted. However, collections totaling more than $5,900 were not deposited in a timely manner as required.
- Record and remit all real property taxes and fees collected in a timely manner.
- Deposit all Clerk fees within the statutory deadline or sooner if practicable.
