DEFUNIAK SPRINGS — Walton County Tax Collector Rhonda Skipper was recently presented with the 2021 Excellence in Finance Operations Legacy Award by the Florida Tax Collectors Association.

The Excellence in Finance Operations Legacy Award recognizes offices who have achieved innovation, customer focus, a well-managed budget and clean audit in the finance operations of the office.

"Receiving this award is an amazing honor and a testament to our Chief Financial Officer, Nathan Thomas, and his finance team," Skipper said. “We have a fantastic finance team that works diligently to ensure we are innovating in our daily work processes to reduce redundancy and ensure accuracy. They ensure every penny is accounted for and accounts are balanced daily.”

The Legacy Award is one of the highest achievements the Florida Tax Collectors Association can award a local tax collector. This is the 11th straight Legacy Award the Walton County Tax Collector's office has received.

“Achieving the clean audit and Legacy Award reflects Rhonda Skipper's exemplary performance day in and day out. Maintaining focus on the details to achieve financial excellence is not easy,” said John Power, past-president of the Florida Tax Collectors Association. “This is a tremendous milestone and designation. The citizens of Walton County can be proud of, and have confidence in, Collector Skipper’s ability to provide exemplary service.”

A five-person judging panel made up of government financial executives from throughout Florida reviewed the Tax Collector’s processes as related to the four areas of competency. The review included methods utilized by Skipper to deliver customer service to the people she serves and consideration of the technological innovations she has developed and put into place.
