State Auditor Adam Edelen has released the audit of the 2011 financial statement of Harrison County Clerk Linda B. Furnish. State law requires the auditor to conduct annual audits of county clerks and sheriffs.
The audit found that the clerk’s financial statement presents fairly the revenues, expenditures, and excess fees of the Harrison County clerk in conformity with the regulatory basis of accounting.
The auditor noted no instances of noncompliance. The auditor also noted no matters involving internal control over financial reporting and its operation that were considered to be material weaknesses.
The county clerk’s responsibilities include collecting certain taxes, issuing licenses, maintaining county records and providing other services. The clerk’s office is funded through statutory fees collected in conjunction with these duties.
The audit report can be found on the auditor’s website.
