How are the County Treasury's
investments performing?

The Treasury department provides banking and investing services to the County’s departments, community college, schools, and special districts. The Treasurer invests the revenue collected by these agencies in a diversity of securities that can be viewed in the Quarterly Portfolio Statistics report. The earnings from these securities are divided and allocated quarterly and can be viewed in the Interest Report. As of March 31, the Treasury has a balance of $291 million and maintains sufficient liquidity to meet the county’s daily expenditure needs.

Our Missions: Treasurer-Tax Collector's Office

We aspire to align treasury and tax collection services with the unique challenges and opportunities of the 21st century, and to provide competent and effective service to all County citizens.
Our Vision:
We believe that the collection of property taxes is critical to a financially healthy Humboldt County, and that working together with citizens and other County departments achieves mutually beneficial results.
Our Values:

Taxes are collected for the benefit of all citizens
Revenue from taxes is the financial backbone for
     providing County services
Understanding tax codes and applying them equitably
     is fair and just
Safeguarding County funds always comes first
To be competent, effective, and efficient
