The Treasurer is an elected official serving a four-year term of office. The office is established by the Oklahoma Constitution, and the duties and responsibilities are set by Oklahoma State law.

REVENUE COLLECTION

The primary responsibility of the Treasurer is to receive, manage, and invest all revenues received by Pushmataha County Government. The revenues include ad valorem property taxes, business personal property taxes, public service corporation taxes, Oklahoma Tax Commission payments and various other sources of revenue.

After collection, the Treasurer disburses the moneys to the county, cities, towns and schools according to budgets approved by the Pushmataha County Excise Board. The County Treasurer is the official custodian of all funds for the County and Treasurer for schools and vo-tech institutions that do not have their own treasurer. 

All warrants and vouchers for all Pushmataha 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. All special assessments, such as sewer, water, weed, cleaning, paving, and nuisance abatement taxes that are originally assessed by cities and towns in the County are certified to the County Treasurer for collection after they have become delinquent. They are placed as a lien on the real estate property account of the taxpayer.

The Treasurer's office also manages Pushmataha County-owned property acquired at the annual sales of real estate for delinquent taxes. The Treasurer also may sell these pieces of property, upon approval of the Board of County Commissioners.

FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT

All revenues are fully invested daily and are either fully collateralized by government securities or are FDIC insured. Collections are balanced on a daily, monthly, and year-to-date basis which allows the investment of funds to be made with greater accuracy.

TAX RATES                                   

The County Treasurer does NOT determine the amount of any tax. Taxable values are determined by the County Assessor and the County Equalization Board. Tax rates (sometimes referred to as "millage rates") are set by the Excise Board. Taxes are based upon budgets submitted by taxing jurisdictions, and include the amounts necessary to pay bonded indebtedness approved by a vote of the people.

PROPERTY AUCTION

The Treasurer’s office conducts a public auction on the second Monday of each June. The auction is for the sale of real estate for non-payment of ad valorem property taxes or non-payment of special assessments such as cleaning and mowing The sale is open to the public and all properties are sold to the highest bidder. Lists of these properties become available from our office in May preceding the June auction. A list of excess funds can be found under Menu > June Resale Auction Info > List of Excess Funds.

OTHER SERVICES

The Treasurer’s office is a public office and we are here to serve you. Our office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (except government holidays).
