An audit of Taney County’s financial for 2020 has returned an unmodified or “clean” report.
This means the auditor feels the county has fairly presented its financial statements in accordance with the cash basis of accounting.
An unmodified opinion is the best rating which can be given in an audit. The CPAs did not notice any non-compliance or material weaknesses in the county’s controls.
Andy Marmouget, a CPA with KPM CPAs & Advisors of Springfield and Branson, presented the audit to the Taney County Commission during a special meeting on Sept. 9. Marmouget specializes in governmental audits.
KPM audited both the county’s financial statements and the county’s biggest federal program, which is a federal government requirement.
Marmouget commended the county for changing their policies to make sure two signatures are on county checks, which is a suggested change the county put into effect.
The report detail the County's Financial Situation as well, including information on handling of CARES Act Funding received as part of the relief package during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
A a recap of the financials can be found with the full story on the Branson Tri-Lakes News Website.
