(Jefferson County) State Auditor Nicole Galloway released an audit of the Jefferson County collector on Monday.
The report received an overall rating of good.
The audit found personal commissions paid to the collector were not properly reported as income and, as a result, not taxed as income.
The report recommended that the county collector work with the county executive and county auditor to ensure future commissions are properly reported.
The audit also recommended better cyber-security practices related to passwords and user I.D’s.
Missouri law requires an audit be performed when a vacancy occurs in a county collector’s office.
Former Jefferson County Collector Beth Mahn resigned back on September 9th and former Deputy Collector Michelle Worth was appointed to fill the vacancy.
The complete audit of the Jefferson County collector can be found on the Missouri State Auditor’s website.
