The district works closely with CAAO Columbus office to monitor legislative proposals that impact local taxpayers and to offer initiatives that assist county auditors in carrying out their duties. During 2013, much activity is anticipated as the state begins the process of enacting a new biennial budget, with ongoing examination of government reform measures, major changes in a variety of taxation issues and addressing the general condition of the state’s economy and unemployment.
The CAAO includes all 88 Ohio County Auditors. Now in its 145th year, it was established to promote and protect the interests of the taxpayers of Ohio and to improve the administration of county government.
