State Auditor Tera Klutz State Auditor Tera Klutz

Indiana Auditor Tera Klutz has filed paperwork in hopes of becoming the first certified public accountant to be elected to a full term in the position in the state's history. Klutz was appointed to the position by Governor Eric Holcomb in 2017 to fill the remainder of Suzanne Crouch's term after she was elected lieutenant governor.

The Indiana auditor, one of Indiana's seven statewide-elected positions, serves as the state's chief financial officer. Klutz is the first CPA to serve in the role and is responsible for overseeing the state's accounting and reporting functions, such as tax distributions, paying the state's bills, paying state employees and administering the state's deferred compensation plan.

"As Indiana's first CPA auditor, I go into the office each day driven by a passion to make sure Indiana remains a center of fiscal strength and responsible, transparent government," said Klutz. "Whether that's through finding efficiencies in technology funding, providing an extra set of eyes over our expenses or making our state spending more transparent, I'm working daily to provide Hoosiers with peace of mind that their tax dollars are being responsibly managed."

Klutz is seeking the Indiana Republican Party's nomination to serve as auditor. The nomination will be decided June 9 at the 2018 Indiana Republican State Convention in Evansville.

    • Ahh…Yes! Turning a Hot Mess into a Cool Breeze

      "Problems cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them," is attributed to Einstein over 75 years ago. This still holds true, particularly in challenging communications. Many people address conflict at the level it was created by rehashing and building more evidence for their ‘side’ of an argument. Repeating a position tends to intensify the separation of people.
