MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A state audit obtained by WAFF 48 News shows non-compliance errors by the Madison County Tax Collector.

The report indicated no money is missing, but the audit showed at least one school district was shorted funds and another received more than $100,000 it never should have received.

It breaks down the numbers from the 2009-10 and 2010-11 fiscal years.

During those two fiscal years, Madison County Schools was set to receive $9,122, but the district was only paid $8,312 because of an error. The state confirmed the district was eventually cut an $810 check when the error was discovered.

But the major error involved Huntsville City Schools. That district  was supposed to receive $14,150, but the district was paid $118,446. The state said the district was forced to pay back $104,256 to the county because of the Madison County Tax Collector's error.

The Alabama Department of Examiners of Public Accounts said all funds are now in the correct areas. They also discovered five other areas where errors popped up.

A copy of the report can be found here, report: 12-168.
