Taxpayer Checkbook


The Erie County Comptroller’s Office is monitoring expenses related to the Covid-19 pandemic and how your tax dollars are being spent.

You have a right to know how this money is spent. 

(The decline in expenditure to date is due to a refund received from a vendor unable to provide products)
