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.
