Collectors

In counties since 1861, the tax collector collects taxes. Previously the treasurer and later the sheriff collected taxes. Except for inheritance taxes, the tax collector collects all county taxes, including "taxes on real and personal property, schools and special districts, and business licenses."[1] Sometimes in the past, the office of tax collector was combined with the office of county treasurer and sheriff. Now it is usually with the treasurer's office.[1]
