The auditor's duties are divided into two separate but equal tasks. One being to supervise the Income Tax Department and the other to oversee Athens City payroll, accounts payable, and fixed assets tracking. The City of Athens has over 50 funds, each has anywhere from two to 50 sources of revenue. The auditor estimates the revenue that each source will generate throughout the year and reviews them several times a year to more accurately depict the available resources.
As each department uses its appropriations during the year, the auditor and her staff post these changes. The auditor’s office continually monitors and updates the available balance in each fund for proper budgeting.
If you have questions regarding real estate taxes, property taxes, manufactured home taxes, or dog licenses, please contact the Athens County auditor at (740) 592-3223.
