Tangipahoa Parish Clerk of Court


Accounting

The Chief Financial Officer is responsible for the fiscal affairs of the Tangipahoa Parish Clerk of Court's Office. The areas of responsibility include the proper accounting of the daily cash receipts from the various departments in the office, the Registry of the Court, accounts payable, and accounts receivable. Every department in the Clerk’s office is on a cash control system. Every time a document is recorded, a copy made, a marriage license issued, or a mortgage certificate completed; an invoice showing the relevant information of the transaction is created. 

The accounting department also maintains the Registry of the Court accounts. It is in these accounts that "disputed money" is placed pending the outcome of a trial. The money in these accounts is only accessible by court order; that is, the "disputed money" cannot be placed into nor withdrawn from a Registry account without an order of the Court signed by a District Judge. 

The Tangipahoa Parish Clerk of Court also has general accounts receivable and payable just as any private company might have. The accounting department oversees the collection of accounts receivable and the payment of accounts payable.
