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.
The primary responsibility of the Treasurer is to receive, manage, and invest all revenues by Washita County Government through ad valorem property taxes, business property taxes, public service corporation taxes, Oklahoma Tax Commission payments and any other sources of revenues collected.
All revenues are fully invested daily and are either fully collaterized by government securities, FDIC insured or by CDARS. Collections are balanced on a daily, monthly, and year-to-date basis which allows the investment of funds to be made with greater accuracy.
After collection, revenues are ultimately disbursed by the Treasurer. Funds are disbursed to the Public Schools, Municipalities within Washita County and Washita County Government. All funds paid to the Washita County Treasurer remain within Washita County.
The County Treasurer does NOT determine the amount of any tax. Taxable values and assessments are determined by the County Assessor. If you have any questions concerning your assessment, please contact the County Assessor’s Office by calling 580-832-2468.
"Thank you for allowing me to be your County Treasurer!"
