What is a Treasurer and Tax Collector?

Treasurers and tax collectors are responsible for collecting, managing and disbursing the revenues of local and regional governments. They provide accounting for tax revenues and benefits payments, as well as analyzing and assessing risk positions and creditworthiness of government agencies within their oversight.

A treasurer or tax collector is also an important source of information during property searches, since tax bills, property liens, assessed values, deductions and taxes collected can give prospective property buyers the most accurate information about real property values. Although they don't determine the values of individual properties, treasurers and tax collectors are the best source for real property information about the amount of taxes paid with regards to a particular property.
