Lee County Tax Collector | Clean Audit

by Zach Lunsford | Feb 23, 2018

The Lee County Tax Collector’s office takes pride in organizational excellence. We are committed to achieving financial accountability and operational excellence. For eight consecutive years, the Lee County Tax Collector has been recognized by the Florida Tax Collector’s Inc. and awarded an Excellence in Financial Operations Award for an annual audit with clear findings.

Local independent audit firm, Tuscan and Company, has given the Lee County Tax Collector’s office an unqualified or “clean audit” for the eighth consecutive fiscal year. Issuance of an “unqualified opinion” means an auditor, after reviewing an organizations financial statements and accompanying transcripts concluded the documents were presented fairly, complied with generally accepted accounting principles represent the true financial picture of the organization. The Lee County Tax Collector’s office has been performing to this high-standard for years though the FTC started recognizing Tax Collector offices for having clean audits starting in 2010.

Due to the Lee County Tax Collector’s commitment to fiscal responsibility, in 2017 we were able to issue a considerable amount of tax payer money to the Lee County Board of County Commission and the independent taxing authorities, which greatly benefits the community.
