The Ventura Treasurer-Tax Collector is charged by the State of California to enforce the California State Revenue and Taxation Code which includes the collection of various taxes. The county tax collector primarily collects property taxes that fund the activities of local government of the county including the school system. The tax collector does not determine how much to collect. The county assessor determines the value of a parcel and gives the value information to the county auditor who applies the tax rates and special assessments to the tax bill. The auditor then charges the tax collector with the collection of the tax bill. The Ventura Treasurer-Tax Collector serves a four year term with a salary of $156,595
