1 Auditor of Public Accounts Adam H. Edelen FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Stephenie Steitzer Edelen Releases Audit of Former Owsley Clerk s Fee Account, Finds $132,000 Deficit County Clerk Resigned, Will Pay Back $61,000 as Part of a Plea Deal FRANKFORT, Ky. State Auditor Adam Edelen today released the audit of the 2011 financial statement of former Owsley County Clerk Sid Gabbard, finding a deficit of more than $132,000 and disclaiming the opinion. The former County Clerk agreed to resign as part of a plea to charges of tax evasion and abusing public trust. He was ordered to pay the state more than $61,000. The audit found that the former Clerk did not maintain adequate accounting records of fee account revenues and expenditures for However, based on available accounting records, material financial statement misstatements were identified along with other significant deficiencies in the county clerk s records and a lack of internal controls. The combination of these items resulted in a high level of audit risk. Therefore, the auditor does not express an opinion on the financial statement. This was the 10 th consecutive audit for the former Owsley County Clerk for which auditors were unable to express an opinion on his financial statements. It is a shame that Mr. Gabbard was able to abuse so much taxpayer money in one of the poorest counties in the country for so long, but I am relieved that he is finally being held accountable for his actions, Auditor Edelen said. The audit will be referred to the Internal Revenue Service, the County Employees Retirement System, the Kentucky Department of Revenue, and the Attorney General. The former Owsley County Clerk did not respond to any of the auditor s findings.
2 The audit contains the following comments: The former County Clerk has a known deficit of $132,305 in his 2011 fee account. After all known unpaid liabilities are accounted for, the former County Clerk has a $132,305 known deficit in his 2011 fee account. The amount reported as a known deficit is the result of undeposited and/or unrecorded receipts, and disallowed expenditures as outlined in the schedule below. Unrecorded and/or Undeposited Receipts $ 132,146 Disallowed Expenditures 159 Total Deficit $ 132,305 Comparisons of the former County Clerk s records, information obtained from outside sources, and bank records revealed $132,146 in un-deposited and/or unrecorded receipts. This comparison also showed significant delays in deposits and unusual cash deposit patterns. Due to numerous problems with the former County Clerk s financial accounting and reporting system and his internal control structure, we cannot eliminate the possibility that the deficit is greater than the known amount. The former County Clerk did not manage the financial activities of his office. The former County Clerk did not account for the financial activities of his office by maintaining complete and accurate financial records. The 4 th Quarterly Report given to auditors was not supported by the receipts and disbursements ledgers and did not agree to bank activity for the period. Due to numerous errors noted in the following comments and recommendations, auditors cannot verify the accuracy of the financial statement. The former County Clerk did not comply with the uniform system of accounts. Multiple year audit findings represent failure to comply with the Uniform System of Accounts as adopted by the State Local Finance Officer (SLFO) under KRS Among other provisions, the SLFO requires the official to maintain accurate recording of receipts by source and expenditures by payee, and to fulfill all other legal requirements relating to the oversight and management of public funds by his office, including all publication requirements. The former County Clerk failed to comply with the minimum requirements of the Uniform System of Accounts in the following areas: Three part receipt forms were not issued for all transactions (See Comment ) Deposits were not made intact daily Bank reconciliations were not prepared monthly Daily checkout sheets were not utilized to account for all receipts collected and were not prepared timely Annual financial statement was not prepared accurately and was not published Quarterly reports were not submitted to the Department for Local Government as required Complete and accurate receipt ledger was not properly maintained
3 The former County Clerk s office lacks adequate segregation of duties. The former County Clerk s office lacks adequate segregation of duties, which further contributes to the inability to rely on his financial information. The county clerk maintains the disbursement ledger, makes the bank deposits, and mails checks for payment. Good internal controls dictate the same employee should not receive payments, make deposits, and prepare checks for payment. The former County Clerk had $159 in disallowed expenditures. The former County Clerk had $159 in disallowed expenditures, which includes $96 in bank overdraft fees, $8 in late fees, and $55 in undocumented reimbursements. Items such as bank overdraft fees, late payment fees, and undocumented reimbursements are not necessary expenses of the office and are reflective of poor management practices. The former County Clerk deposited $36,600 of unidentified cash after year end. The former County Clerk deposited cash totaling $36,600 after the close of calendar year The former County Clerk did not provide any financial documentation or records supporting the source of the funds; however, we have given the former County Clerk credit for these funds in determining his account deficit. If these funds had not been applied to the 2011 Fee Account, the known deficit would be significantly higher. We cannot eliminate the possibility that these cash deposits were from 2012 cash collections as these deposits could not be directly attributed to any 2011 collections or other fees of the former County Clerk s office. Furthermore, we question the validity of any and all deposits occurring after the former County Clerk has completed his settlement as no additional funds should be deposited into the fee account after settlement is made. All collections for each business day must be deposited intact daily. Funds received should not remain un-deposited for significant time periods as this increases the risk that the funds will be misappropriated. The former County Clerk has not closed out his 2011 fee account. The former County Clerk has an account balance of $20. Once the $132,305 due personally from the former Clerk is collected, the former County Clerk will have a total of $132,325 available to pay the following liabilities:
4 Unpaid Obligations: Internal Revenue Service - Withholdings and Matching $ 25,007 State Treasurer- Kentucky Retirement System - Withholdings and Matching 23,094 Delinquent Tax 5,647 Owsley County- Delinquent Tax 7,982 Deed Transfer Tax 1,804 Excess Fees Due 1,161 Delinquent Taxes Due- Owsley County School 19,804 Owsley County Library 6,956 Owsley County Health 2,208 Owsley County Extension 5,598 Owsley County Soil Conservation 2,558 Owsley County Attorney 8,784 Owlsey County Sheriff 7,121 Other Liabilities- Due 2010 Fee Account for Usage Paid and overpayments 5,609 Due 2012 Fee Account for deposit errors 2,316 Due Usage Tax Account 489 Due Clerk for Net Wage Difference 1,896 Due County Clerk for Expense Allowance Payable 3,004 Due Deputy Clerk for Net Wages Difference 643 Due Deputy Clerk for Net Wages Difference 644 Total Unpaid Obligations $ 132,325 The former County Clerk did not remit payroll withholding and matching funds to proper agencies. The former County Clerk withheld payments from employee payroll checks for FICA, Retirement, Federal, and State withholdings as required. However, the former County Clerk did not remit these employee withholdings to the appropriate agencies. In addition, the former County Clerk did not provide the required employer matching funds for FICA and retirement withholdings. As of December 31, 2011, the former County Clerk owes the Internal Revenue Service $25,007 for FICA withholdings, matching funds, and federal withholdings. The former County Clerk owes the County Employees Retirement System $23,094 for retirement withholdings and matching funds. Title 26 of the United States Code outlines requirements for FICA withholding and matching requirements in addition to federal withholding requirements. The former County Clerk withheld FICA improperly from wages for calendar year Social Security withholdings were reduced to 4.2% for the calendar year, however the former County Clerk did not reduce the amount withheld. Employees are due additional funds for wages earned based on the improper calculation for social security. (See Comment ) Had withholding reports been
5 completed the clerk would have been aware of the change in the social security rate and proper payments would have been made to the employees. The former County Clerk was required to match 7.65% of gross payroll (less retirement) for FICA. KRS requires employers to submit retirement withholding and matching funds in accordance with KRS and The former County Clerk was required to match 16.93% of gross payroll for the first half of the calendar year and 18.96% of gross payroll for the second half of the calendar year for retirement. 103 KAR 18:010 requires all employers to deduct, withhold, and pay to the state taxes required to be withheld. We will refer this issue to the Internal Revenue Service, the County Employees Retirement System, the Kentucky Department of Revenue, and the Attorney General. The former County Clerk did not account for delinquent taxes completely and accurately. The former County Clerk did not properly report the amount of delinquent tax payments received for calendar year Auditors confirmed delinquent tax revenues from outside sources and discovered $51,890 in delinquent tax payments that were received by the former County Clerk but were not reported and paid to the appropriate taxing districts. In addition, $21,438 of delinquent tax bills were missing from the former County Clerk s office indicating payments for these bills were collected, but not recorded, or these bills were not properly secured within the Clerk s office. By not reporting all collections, taxing districts, the County Attorney, and the County Sheriff were not paid their share of delinquent taxes. Additionally, understated delinquent taxes contribute to incomplete and inaccurate financial reporting and to the known deficit in the former County Clerk s 2011 fee account. The following known payments are due the taxing districts for delinquent taxes: State Share $ 5,647 County Share 7,982 School 19,804 Library 6,956 Health 2,208 Extension 5,598 Soil 2,558 County Attorney 8,784 Sheriff 7,121 Total Due Districts 66,658 Retained by County Clerk: Commissions and Fees 6,670 TOTAL $ 73,328 In addition to the $73,328 of known unpaid delinquent taxes, there could have been payments received for prior year delinquent tax bills that could not be accounted for. These bills were
6 turned over to the former County Clerk as required, but were not reported as paid and cannot otherwise be located in the former County Clerk s records. Furthermore, the former County Clerk did not collect the proper amount from taxpayers due to not calculating the delinquent tax amount owed accurately. We noted he charged 25% for sheriff fees, instead of 15% that would be appropriate. Also, he did not always charge the appropriate amount for interest, county attorney fees and clerk commission. By not calculating the correct amount for delinquent taxes, the taxpayers did not pay the appropriate amount and the districts did not receive adequate payments. The County Clerk s Manual gives examples of how to calculate tax bills correctly based on the month of collection. We will refer this matter to the Attorney General and the County Attorney. The former County Clerk did not remit deed transfer tax to the county. The former County Clerk collected deed transfer tax in accordance with KRS ; however, he did not remit the total due to the county. The county is owed $1,804 for deed transfer tax for calendar year The former County Clerk has not closed out his 2010 fee account. The former Clerk deposited $39,900 of cash deposits into the 2010 fee account and paid out liabilities due from the 2010 fee account except for $25,551 of liabilities as noted below. The former County Clerk has a deficit account balance of ($2,813). Unpaid Obligations: Internal Revenue Service - Withholdings and Match $ 4,711 State Treasurer- Withholdings 4,712 County Attorney - Delinquent Tax 2,942 Due to 2009 Fee Account for Prior Period Unpaid Obligations 13,186 Total Unpaid Obligations $ 25,551 The former County Clerk did not settle prior period liabilities. During our audit of the 2010 Fee account we became aware of additional liabilities that were owed from the 2009 Fee account that were not identified in the 2009 audit. As was found in the 2010 audit, the former County Clerk did not remit all payroll withholdings and matching funds for FICA and retirement for The former County Clerk owes $15,137 for FICA and $2,236 for retirement. Also, deed transfer tax totaling $2,429 due the county for 2009 was not remitted. Once these additional liabilities are accounted for, the 2009 Fee Account is in a deficit. Furthermore, the former Clerk did not close out 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 Fee Accounts by collecting and paying the amounts due as determined in prior year audits. We have netted the amounts due in each of these prior years into a single schedule. The 2010 Fee Account owes the 2009 Fee Account $13,186 as noted in Comment , which can be used to partially fund the additional liabilities identified. The former County Clerk is personally responsible for the remainder necessary for all prior period liabilities to be satisfied.
7 Amounts Due From: 2010 Fee Account (See Comment ) $ 13,186 Amounts Due To: Extension $ 380 County Attorney 102 City of Booneville 105 Soil Conservation 410 Internal Revenue Service - FICA 15,137 County Employees Retirement System - Retirement 2,236 County - Deed Transfer Tax 2,429 20,799 Amount Personally Due From Clerk $ (7,613) The former County Clerk did not issue receipts in accordance with KRS The former County Clerk did not prepare receipts for all funds collected. Auditors reviewed one month of collections and noted the total listing of receipts does not agree to the daily checkout sheet. In addition, receipts were not issued in triplicate as required. The former County Clerk did not record payments from the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the Fiscal Court in accordance with KRS The former County Clerk did not record all payments received from the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the Owsley County Fiscal Court in accordance with KRS Auditors performed test procedures on these payments and noted these payments were not recorded on the daily checkout sheets or in the receipts ledger, however, we did note that these payments were deposited into the bank account. The only recording of these payments was made on the Quarterly Report, and those amounts did not agree to third party confirmations of state and county payments. The former County Clerk did not follow proper timekeeping practices for payroll. During our audit, we noted that some timesheets did not account for the hours worked each day and did not account for leave used. Form 1099 was not prepared for all applicable contract labor. As a trustee/agent, the County Clerk is responsible for reporting contract labor payments to the appropriate agencies in a timely manner. The former County Clerk paid a total of $2,000 to an individual for contract labor that should be reported as taxable income by the individual. The Internal Revenue Service requires Form 1099 be issued to individual contractors for services resulting in income of $600 or more. We will refer this matter to the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Revenue for review. The former County Clerk did not remit ad valorem taxes to taxing districts timely. During the test of ad valorem taxes, we noted that checks to some taxing districts did not clear the bank in a timely manner. State and School taxing districts checks cleared the bank promptly, but disbursements to the county and other districts did not clear the bank until months after the taxes were collected. Several checks for October, November, and December ad valorem collections did not clear the bank until March 2012 and one as late as June Checks not clearing the
8 bank in a timely manner indicates the former County Clerk s failure to send the payments according to the guidelines of KRS The former County Clerk did not prepare and submit title applications timely. The Transportation Cabinet notified the Auditor s Office that title applications for Owsley County were not being prepared and submitted in a timely manner. The former County Clerk cashed $979 of checks received from taxpayers for fee collections. To be in compliance with the uniform system of accounts, receipts should be issued for all fee collections, batched daily, recorded on a daily checkout sheet, deposited intact, and properly posted to the receipt ledger. During delinquent tax testing, we confirmed delinquent tax payments from Owsley County taxpayers. We received a copy of a cancelled check from a taxpayer that paid a prior year delinquent tax bill of $474 that we could not trace to a deposit into the former Clerk s bank accounts. In addition, we noted a manual receipt for $505 issued to a taxpayer that included delinquent tax we could not trace. In both cases, inquiry of the bank determined these checks were cashed by the former Clerk. In total, we documented $979 of fee collections for calendar year 2011 were cashed at the bank. Further testing revealed fee collection checks of $2,987 and $719 were cashed for calendar years 2012 and 2013, respectively. These instances support the audit finding that delinquent tax collections are not accounted for completely and accurately. In addition to cashing fee collection checks, we also identified instances in which the former Clerk s office cashed checks unrelated to the operations of the former Clerk s office. The county clerk s responsibilities include collecting certain taxes, issuing licenses, maintaining county records and providing other services. The clerk s office is funded through statutory fees collected in conjunction with these duties.
