OVERVIEW

El Paso County is committed to providing transparency on financial information to the public through the publication of the County’s Financial Report along with interim monthly financial reports, quarterly investment, revenue and expenditure reports and long-term debt reports on the County webpage. By doing so, it affords the public the opportunity to view and question how their taxpayer dollars are being spent. By displaying the County spending and providing access to those numbers we ensure greater accountability to the public.

The County of El Paso has been received the “Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting” every year since 1989, from the Government Finance Officers Association. This recognition ensures the preparation of the County’s Compressive Annual Report (CAFR) is prepared in accordance of the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB).

Overlapping rates are those that apply to property owners within the County of El Paso. Not all overlapping rates apply to all County property owners; for example, although the County property tax rates apply to all county property owners, the City of El Paso rates apply only to those whose property is located within the City's geographic boundaries. The El Paso Independent School District was selected for presentation purposes which varies by geographic location within the County.
