Kingston, NY (March 29, 2023) – Ulster County Comptroller March Gallagher released a Real Property Tax Collection Audit today. The audit had four major findings.
“Tax collection is one of the most sacrosanct responsibilities of government,” said County Comptroller March Gallagher. “I am relieved to be able to share with taxpayers and elected officials both evidence of our shortcomings as well as solutions in concert with the Executive and the Legislature. Weak internal controls have resulted in a situation where properties and financial obligations were mismanaged at best.
