IC 5-11-4-3(d) states: “Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, each: (1) taxing unit; and (2) soil and water conservation district: shall be charged at the rate of one hundred seventy-five dollars ($175) per day for each field examiner, private examiner, expert, or employee of the state board of accounts who is engaged in making examinations or investigations.

Taxing Unit Rate: $175/day ($23.33/hour)
Full Cost Rate*: $89.78/hour
Processing Fees range from $95 to $2,990 and varies depending on unit type and engagement performed.
*The full cost rate is the amount we would need to bill to each unit of government to be fully funded. A new rate is calculated each October using the following formula:
|(Prior Year Expenditures – Processing Fees Collected from the Prior Year)|
|Total Audit Hours Charged to Governmental Units for the Prior Year.|
The full cost rate is charged to federal programs, utilities, universities, and any other entity not considered a taxing unit.
