The Treasurer is an elected official, chosen by the voters of Franklin County and serves a four year term. Our present Treasurer is Susan J. Wray.
This office is responsible for collection of all monies due the county. We collect personal property, real estate, state income and estimated income taxes. The Treasurer's office collects meals tax and transient occupancy tax as well. Other departments in the county bring their daily collection to the Treasurer's office for processing. Example: You may purchase a building permit in the Building Inspection's department but at the end of the day the money and appropriate papers are brought to the Treasurer's office for deposit.
There are many calls daily from lending institutions needing to know the status of certain taxes because a taxpayer may be considering refinancing a home or business.
Bank Statements for the county are also handled through this office as we reconcile statements for not only the county, but the schools and social services departments as well.
Dog Tags are also issued from within this office. We sell the actual tags and send out letters concerning dog tag purchasing to all persons having a dog vaccinated by local veterinarians.
We try very hard to listen to the taxpayers and make changes in procedure whenever possible to better serve the citizens of the county. There are signs displayed in our office explaining charges and additional information concerning phone numbers, etc., for state offices such as the Virginia Game and Inland Fisheries.
