Payroll Clearing Account. Basically, funds are transferred from investment
accounts to checking accounts for payments and claims.

funds to earn interest for respective accounts.
The County Treasurer and Collector is responsible for collecting and
distributing real estate taxes. Once a year the tax bills are mailed and
the taxpayer has the option of paying the amount due in two equal

important part of the job is making sure the taxpayers address is current.

1,100 mobile home statements. The mobile home tax is for the current year
whereas the real estate tax is for the previous year. Upon receipt of the
