Message from Treasurer Stracner
"The Treasurer is an elected official in county government. I am responsible for the disbursement of all county funds and school district funds. My office receives county property tax, sales tax, turnback funds, grants, fees, and fines from the other county officials and other sources. I will distribute the money to the various taxing entities and the other units of the county."
The County Treasurer is required to charge a two percent commission on all funds coming to his/her office. There are a few exceptions. No commission is allowed for the handling of borrowed money, money collected from insurance on losses, fire protection premium taxes (ACT 833 funds for fire departments) and all non-revenue receipts, which is defined as reimbursement of all or a part of a payment made by a county (ACA 21-6-302, 6-17-908, 6-20-221, and 14-284-403). Also, the County Treasurer is allowed a smaller commission, 1/4 of 1%, on funds from school districts that employ their own treasurer (ACA 6-13-701) and 1/8 of 1%, on funds from municipal improvement districts (ACA 14-90-913). The commission is not kept by the Treasurer but is intended to create a course of revenue accruing to the office from which the salary and operation of the office is paid. Any excess Treasurer's commission shall be redistributed to the various entities that were charged on a pro-rata basis (AG Opinion #78-112).
