Treasurer's Duties

County Treasurers of Ohio's 88 counties have traditionally served as the local tax collector. However, we do much more than just collect taxes. The Treasurer serves as the County's Chief Investment Officer, administrator of Delinquent Tax Collection programs and the keeper of Property Tax Escrow accounts.

With the investment of approximately $60 million in county funds, earning about $2.5 million in interest a year, we help fund local schools, municipalities, and county services.
