auditor adam1FRANKFORT, Ky. (6/24/13) – State Auditor Adam Edelen today released the audit of the sheriff’s settlement – 2011 taxes for Daviess County Sheriff Keith Cain. 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.
 
The audit found that the sheriff’s financial statement fairly presents the taxes charged, credited and paid, for the period May 1, 2011 through May 7, 2012, in conformity with the modified cash basis of accounting.
 
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.
 
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.
 
The audit report can be found on the auditor’s website.
