Bradley County Trustee Mike Smith has announced the Trustee’s Office received a "very positive" state audit for the 2020-2021 fiscal year. The state audit was performed by the Division of County Audits of the Tennessee Comptroller’s Office.
Trustee Smith said, “The tax processing clerks had another outstanding year servicing over 50,000 Bradley County and City of Charleston parcels with 100 percent accuracy. This past fiscal year was the sixth year Bradley County worked with the City of Charleston to collect their property tax and it continues to be very successful. I would like to thank Charleston officials for working with Bradley County to save both entities taxpayer money.
The accounting division continues to operate at the highest level while monitoring over 245 million dollars of cash flow and 600 governmental accounts. The excellent accuracy of the accounting division was again proven as they had another year with no year end adjustments required by the state auditors.
The processing and monitoring of our senior citizen tax relief and tax freeze programs and the administration of our numerous partial payment plans continue to be both efficient and effective.”
Trustee Smith continued, “My staff and I understand how critical financial accuracy is to both the taxpayers and Bradley County government. We will continue to strive for 100 percent accuracy and to serve Bradley County citizens with the highest regard and respect.”
