This includes the distribution of tax dollars from real estate, personal property, and manufactured homes to the subdivisions such as townships, villages, cities, school districts, libraries and fire districts.

The Auditor also distributes motor vehicle fees, gasoline taxes, estate taxes, and local government funds.

The Auditor is the paymaster for all county employees and is responsible for the preparation of the County's Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
