Financial Services provides financial, accounting, payroll, and accounts payable services to the County's various departments, agencies and acts as the disbursing officer for smaller taxing districts with the County. To facilitate effective management of these responsibilities, Financial Services is organized into three categories:
The Accounts Payable division’s audit function provides an independent and impartial audit of invoices for legitimate expenditures of County funds. Once the auditing function is completed, the Accounts Payable division processes warrants for payment of the invoices processed for that time period. For additional information on our Accounts Payable services, please call our office at 509-427-3730 or email our Accounting Team.
The Payroll division is responsible for the production of the county payroll, processing the related transactions and reports and generation of county employee paychecks. This division works closely with the State Department of Retirement, Social Security Administration, Employment Security Department and the Internal Revenue Service. If you have additional questions about county payroll, please call us at 509-427-3730 or email our Payroll Department.
Services provided by the Fiscal Accounting division of the Auditor’s Office include general ledger accounting, financial statement development, assistance in preparation and monitoring of county budget, fixed assets and grant accounting and analysis as well as the liaison for the annual audit conducted by the State Auditor’s Office.
