Regular audit of Boyle County Sheriff’s Tax Settlement comes back clean

A regular audit of the Boyle County Sheriff’s Tax Settlement by the state auditor’s office came back clean with no issues reported, according to a release from Kentucky Auditor of Public Accounts Mike Harmon.

“The sheriff’s financial statement fairly presents the taxes charged, credited and paid for the period April 17, 2018 through April 15, 2019 in conformity with the regulatory basis of accounting,” the statement read. “The auditor noted no instances of noncompliance. The auditor also noted no matters involving internal control over financial reporting and its operation that were considered to be material weaknesses.”

State law requires the auditor to annually audit the accounts of each county sheriff. In compliance with this law, the auditor issues two sheriff’s reports each year: one reporting on the audit of the sheriff’s tax account, and the other reporting on the audit of the fee account used to operate the office.
