Welcome to the Indiana County Auditors Section
The elected auditors are privileged to serve the taxpayers of this county and pledge to continually refine their skills to serve as watchdogs of county taxpayer funds.
The Auditors examine, settle, and adjust the accounts of all departments of the county and make an annual report to the financial officers of the county government and state agencies.
- County auditors are only concerned with the taxpayer money that is collected for COUNTY expenditures. Auditors verify expenditure records and report their findings to the Commissioners or State Offices.
- Visit the Commissioners page for a listing of county departments reviewed by the Auditors.
- Townships and Borough have their OWN auditors that review those expenditures. However, funds received by the county from individual tax collectors are audited here.
- State and Federal related accounts also provide audits for funds they manage such as: state roads, social security, employment or welfare fraud.
- In the navigation of the website, select “departments”. A listing of over 25 departments gives a broad listing of accounts auditors are responsible for examining.
- Additionally, they produce reports for the Court of Common Pleas, the State Attorney General and the Office of the Pennsylvania Courts. Many of the departments audited at the county level are also subject to state and federal audits.
The County Code, Act of August 9, 1955 (P.L. 323, No. 130), as amended states that each Pennsylvania county must elect either three auditors or one controller.
- Every four years from a bipartisan field.
- Current terms expire December 31, 2019.
- Voters will choose three auditors in November 2019 to serve the 2020-2024 term.
Auditors submit an annual report of the financial condition of the county to the state Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED).
