Where Does Tax Collection Money Go?

Through appointed boards and other officials, county governments provide parks, libraries, sewers, emergency management, public assistance, and in some cases, hospitals, ambulances, fire service, and community colleges. Last but not least, county government is also responsible for building and maintaining county roads and bridges, providing police protection, building inspections, planning, and zoning services. When it comes to paying for these local services, state laws allow for boards of county commissioners to levy taxes for the general fund and for other specific county purposes.
