A recent audit of Lyon County Sheriff's 2018 tax settlement showed no concerns.
The audit reviewed the period Jan. 1-April 15, 2019, which were the first four months under new Sheriff Brent White. It looked at aspects of the sheriff's tax account as related to collection duties. It is required by state law.
The report on the audit indicates White's financial statement fairly presents the taxes charges, credited and paid for the specified period in conforming with accounting practices.
"The auditor noted no instances of noncompliance," a news release from State Auditor Mike Harmon read. "The auditor also noted no matters involving internal control over financial reporting and its operation that were considered to be material weaknesses."
The sheriff's responsibilities include collecting property taxes, providing law enforcement and performing services for the county fiscal court and courts of justice.
The sheriff's office is funded through statutory commissions and fees collected in conjunction with these duties.
