Property Tax Collection
When people think of county revenues they often think of property taxes, which account for the majority of revenue in county budgets. The treasurer, as the tax collector is responsible for collecting all property taxes for the county, cities, school districts and any other political district authorized to levy real estate taxes.
In South Dakota, the county treasurer is responsible for issuing motor vehicle titles, licenses and registrations on about 1 million vehicles a year. Although the Division of Motor Vehicles is the central state office for maintaining accurate motor vehicle records, it is the county treasurer who enters the vehicle information into the central database. This vehicle registration information is not only important to counties, but other state, local and federal agencies as well. Vehicle licensing is an important responsibility and necessary for local governments. The money generated (about $40 million) helps maintain your local roads and bridges.
The county treasurer’s primary duty is to manage all county funds. Because the treasurer receives money from other county offices, they are responsible for investing that money to help generate more money.
