A liaison with the Taxpayer Services Division of the Tennessee Department of Revenue paid a call on the DeKalb County Clerk’s Office recently.
Katie Julian stopped by to greet County Clerk James L. (Jimmy) Poss and the staff and to learn firsthand what the department can do to assist the local office in providing better service to the people.
“I serve as a county clerk liaison with the Department of Revenue and work with all the different city and county clerks. I go around and do visits periodically,” she said.
Julian, who has known County Clerk Poss for several years, said she is impressed with the services he and his staff provide for the community.
“For business owners, navigating through the complexities of state tax compliance can be very overwhelming. Likewise, some vehicle title/registration transactions can be very complex. In my years serving as a county clerk liaison for the Tennessee Department of Revenue, I have witnessed firsthand Jimmy’s commitment to providing excellent service and assistance to the citizens of his county on these matters and more. He goes above and beyond in every way possible. As a matter of fact, spending so much time helping his people has allowed Jimmy to work with us to figure out ways to improve procedures and make processes more efficient for all of the business owners and drivers in this state. The citizens of DeKalb County are lucky to have such a dedicated and helpful county clerk,” said Julian.
County Clerk Poss said although he is in regular contact with the state department on matters related to his office, he was pleased to get a personal visit from Julian..
“Katie and others at the state are always available to assist us with concerns that our office or the people of our community may have related to business and motor vehicle transactions and we appreciate their help,” said County Clerk Poss.
