The Department received $270.1 million in revenues in fiscal year 2017 and $37.0 million in the first five months of fiscal year 2018 (September 1, 2017, through January 31, 2018).
Of that amount, $143.9 million was for maintenance taxes that the Department assessed and the Comptroller’s Office collected during fiscal year 2017.
For 30 (97 percent) of the 31 individual revenue transactions for licenses, fees, and permits tested totaling $23.7 million, the Department:
Had adequate supporting documentation.
- Processed the transactions with appropriate segregations of duties.
- Charged the correct fees.
- Used accurate calculations to determine the appropriate revenue amount to be collected.
- Accurately recorded the transactions in the Centralized Accounting and Payroll/Personnel System and the Uniform Statewide Accounting System.
- Appropriately processed daily summary level deposit amounts into its Cash Receipt System. Those amounts also had adequate supporting documentation.
However, the Department received and accepted a $1.6 million transaction from the Comptroller’s Office in error.
For the $143.9 million in maintenance tax revenues it received from the Comptroller’s Office in fiscal year 2017, the Department recorded and appropriately approved the revenues.
