Your County Treasurer’s office has a staff of five full-time employees. Their responsibilities include the collection of all real estate taxes, manufactured home taxes, sewer bills, personal property taxes and estate taxes. In addition, they record all monies received by any other county offices from dog tag licenses, to lunch money from Developmental Disabilities, to immunizations from the Health Department. In addition to collecting and recording the county monies, the Treasurer is responsible for County Investments that includes a portfolio of 55 million dollars. The office maintains various accounts ranging from simple depositories to complex trust accounts that hold all the county investments. As your County Treasurer, my goal is to assist the Allen County taxpayers in the most efficient and professional environment possible according to the Ohio Revised Code.
