Tift County's Finance department is responsible for managing all financial assets held by Tift County. This includes maintaining current documentation of all financial transactions at each level of the County. The department processes all payments to outside vendors and agencies, receives and deposits in a timely manner all payments to the county from outside sources and generates monthly reports for review by the Board of Commissioners. The Finance Department is also responsible for developing the County's annual budget which details the projected revenues and expenditures of all County departments for each fiscal year. The County's fiscal year begins on July 1 and ends on June 30. Throughout the year the Finance Department manages the budget and provides each County department with monthly reports detailing the department's expenditures so that the department head can adjust his operations for the remainder of the year accordingly. In addition, the employees of the Finance Department work hand in hand with the County's outside auditors as they audit the financial records of the County each year. In summary, all revenues received by the County and all expenditures disbursed must pass through this department and it is the responsibility of the Finance Department to assure that these transactions are processed and documented both timely and accurately.
