Fiscal Services (Finance and Payroll)
The County Auditor is the chief fiscal officer of the county. It is the Auditor's responsibility to account for the millions of dollars received each year by the county and to issue warrants (checks) in payment of all county obligations, including the distribution of tax dollars to the townships, villages, cities, school districts and library systems, as well as other county agencies. The Auditor's Fiscal Services Department is the watchdog over all county funds and maintains the official records of all receipts, disbursements and fund balances.
It is the Auditor's responsibility to serve as the paymaster for all county employees.
The Auditor also distributes motor vehicle license fees, gasoline taxes, estate taxes, fines and local government funds, in addition to real estate, personal property and manufactured home taxes.
As chief fiscal officer in each county, the Auditor is required by law to prepare the county's annual financial report. Butler County prepares a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) and a Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR).
