Office of the State Treasurer

​​​​​​​​​The Office of the State Treasurer is the state's chief financial officer. As a constitutional officer, the State Treasurer serves as the state's fiscal watchdog, oversees investments, and fosters economic security for the citizens of Wisconsin in a financially sustainable manner. ​​

Economic Security

The Office of the State Treasurer advocates for the economic security of all Wisconsinites, because everyone deserves the chance to build a strong financial future for themselves and their families.


Investing in public schools and local communities is a core duty of the State Treasurer’s office, and T​reasurer Leiber has worked​ diligently to ensure effective management of public funds. Through the Treasurer’s role on the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands, he oversees its $1.4 billion in state​​​​ trust funds. The Treasurer’s priorities include: 

  • Investing wisely to provide record-breaking distributions for the Common School Fund that provides funding for our public schools focused on supporting libraries and technology. 
  • Supporting municipalities and school districts by financing critical projects that include roads and bridges to housing. To learn more about the State Trust Fund Loan Program, click here, and to see a map of investments across the state, click here​.

Taxpayer Transparency

 Wisconsin taxpayers have the right to know how their tax dollars are being spent, and to be reunited with their unclaimed property or money when possible. The Office of the State Treasurer continues to provide this transparency and support to Wisconsinites.

  • Taxpayers shouldn’t have to have an accounting degree or spend hours sifting through long, confusing documents to understa​​​nd how the State of Wisconsin spends their tax​ dollars. That’s why the Treasurer’s office creates Taxpayer Reports, read the latest version for the 2021-23 biennium here.
  • The State Treasurer works to promote the return of unclaimed property by partnering with the Department of Revenue. Find out if you have money or property waiting for you here.​
  • The Treasurer has collaborated with county treasurers to best serve taxpayers on a number of issues - most recently to address property tax foreclosure and provide information on property taxes​ to Wisconsinites.
