Accuracy

The entire taxation process revolves around accuracy and is one of the most important aspects of the Auditor’s role.

I will deliver reliable property values, correct tax calculations, appropriate millage rates and accurate tax bills by:

  • Using data analysis methods I have honed over the past 14 years to audit the tax roll electronically, identifying assets that should be taxed and removing those that should not be taxed.
  • Fully utilizing Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) schematics so motor vehicles are valued correctly rather than at the lowest value possible.
  • Electronically validating the tax data for completeness and reasonableness so errors are identified and corrected before the tax bills are generated.

Transparency

Trust in government and the taxation process starts with transparency.

I will provide our taxpayers with all of the information necessary to understand our processes so they will know what to expect when interacting with the Auditor's Office and can feel confident that their matters are being handled equitably. I will do this by:

  • Overhauling the Auditor's website so it is user-friendly and mobile adaptable.
  • Making requirements, deadlines and policies clearly available online.
  • Providing online forms so taxpayers can conveniently submit their information electronically.
  • Offering taxation data, such as the tax roll, to taxpayers online so they can track and validate the Auditor's Office on their own.

Leadership

A successful taxation process is only possible by maintaining high standards of leadership and fostering collaborative partnerships.

Through proven leadership and long standing inter-departmental relationships, I will transform the Auditor's Office into a positive, constructive partner in the taxation process by:

  • Implementing department-wide team meetings and daily huddles to foster camaraderie and cross-training among the staff.
  • Working in partnership with the Assessor and Treasurer to offer exemplary, cohesive, and consistent services to our taxpayers.
  • Calculating appropriate millage rates and accurate tax bills.
