About the Treasurer's Office
In some states, the person who performs the duties performed by county treasurers in Indiana is referred to as the tax collector. That title perfectly describes the primary duty of the county treasurer. Not only is the county treasurer responsible for collecting taxes, but in the case of delinquent taxes, the treasurer may order the sale of real property to pay delinquent taxes.
The treasurer also receives distributions of local income and other taxes that are collected by the state. The treasurer is responsible for the collection of some taxes imposed by state law on behalf of the state and also has custodial and investment responsibility for all taxes and other revenues collected by county government. Together with the auditor, the treasurer insures the proper distribution of funds.
Generally see IC 36-2-10 for duties of the County Treasurer.
