As steward of the state’s finances, our agency serves every citizen in the state. We insist on strict accountability in the collection and expenditure of taxpayer dollars.

But our job doesn’t stop there. The Comptroller’s office provides a wide variety of assistance for business owners, local officials and individuals across the state.
