INFORMATION ABOUT THE TREASURER'S OFFICE
The County Treasurer is an elected constitutional officer with a four-year term whose primary function is to collect taxes certified by the County Assessor from the assessment valuations placed on real estate, personal property, and public utilities within Canadian County.
The Treasurer disburses the money to the county, cities, towns, and schools according to levies approved by the Canadian County Excise Board. The County Treasurer is the official custodian of all funds for the County and the Treasurer for schools and vo-tech institutions that do not employ their own treasurer.
Warrants and vouchers for all Canadian County departments are registered and maintained through the Treasurer's office.
Tax Collections are balanced on a daily, monthly, and year-to-date basis, which allows the investment of funds to be made with more accuracy. Special assessments, such as sewer, water, weed, cleaning, paving and nuisance abatements that are originally assessed by cities and towns within Canadian County are certified to the County Treasurer for collection once they become delinquent. Special Assessments are placed as a lien on the real estate property account of the taxpayer.
The Treasurer's office also manages Canadian County-owned property acquired at the annual sale of real estate for delinquent taxes. The Treasurer also may sell these pieces of property, upon approval of the Board of County Commissioners.
