About the Finance Department

The Finance Department provides fiscal and accounting controls over resources by processing vendor payments and payroll checks, maintaining the County's general ledger system, and providing financial reports. We invest surplus funds and maintain sufficient cash balances in compliance with Florida Statutes and County ordinances and manage the County's debt financing and debt issuances.

The Finance Department serves all County departments as well as those entities conducting financial transactions with Miami-Dade County, and outside financial consultants.

The department serves as the county's Tax Collector, collecting and distributing current and delinquent real and personal property taxes, non-ad valorem special assessments for all local taxing authorities within Miami-Dade County, local business tax receipts and convention and tourist taxes. We also act as an agent on behalf of the State of Florida to issue automobile, boat, hunting and fishing licenses.


To deliver accurate and timely financial services to support customer needs and for sound decision-making.


The Finance Department has won achievement awards for the Vendor Payment Inquiry system and the FAMIS Data Warehouse.
