Welcome to the Lake County Auditor’s official website!
The Auditor oversees many critical functions of Lake County government. The Auditor serves as the county’s chief fiscal officer, chief assessor, and sealer of weights and measures. As fiscal officer, the auditor is responsible for maintaining county financial records and issuing warrants for payment of county obligations. As assessor, the auditor is charged with determining property values for taxing purposes and transferring real property deeds. As sealer of weights and measures, the auditor tests and certifies the accuracy of various commercial measuring devices, like gas pumps and commercial scales.
In addition to these formal roles, the Auditor serves as administrator of the county’s data processing center and secretary to the Data Processing Board, secretary and chairman to both the Board of Revision and the Budget Commission, and Chairman of the GIS Board. Other duties include issuing dog and vendor licenses, certifying tax rates, administering various tax reduction programs such as the Homestead Exemption.
