Rockland recoups over $100,000 through audit

NEW CITY – An audit of Rockland County’s telecommunications and utility bills has recouped more than $100,000.

The audit was implemented by county Purchasing Director Paul Brennan, who worked with Troy & Banks of Buffalo, a company that specializes in audits of telecommunications and utility bills.

County Executive Edwin Day said so far this year the county has been refunded over $100,000 from Orange and Rockland Utilities, Verizon and Verizon Wireless.

Troy & Banks is continuing its audit, which will also include Gross Receipts tax – the 911 surcharge – owed to the county and collected by telecommunications companies.

It will be the first time that Rockland has conducted an audit of the Gross Receipts Tax.
