Interesting comment Larry. By
reconciling do they mean the bank statements? I am lucky to get the town
auditors to do it. My taxes were due Monday and I have spent part of yest
and today rechecking all my cash records to the nemrc prints which (along the
way) I check to the tapes of checks in order to make sure I didn't make any
dippy writing down mistakes. It would be fine with me to have someone else
collect the $$$ and give me batches with two tapes run (one with ck #s) to post
to the tax admin prog and deposit. Actually, it would be fine with me if
the state collected the school money. let them deal with the address
changes that didn't get entered etc etc.
If they had to deal with the camping trailer
people then they'd make the leg drop taxing them pretty xyv fast.
Also, who reprints or copies the million
LOST BILLS? I have gone to dayglo paper, which has made it easier for
people to find them when they look through piles of their important

different persons under the heading of 'internal controls' and 'segregation of
functions in cash management' - so we can all expect to hear more of

Thanks to the many officials out there in Muninet land that took the
time to answer my questions about tax bills. The question was prompted
by an audit report from our professional auditing firm that questioned the
practice of the Treasurer sending out the bills and collecting the
taxes. My reaction was that a great many town in Vt do it this way--we
can't afford to hire a separate "financial" person. Your replies
pretty much proved me right.
