CTHRU is designed to provide an intuitive experience for exploring where our tax dollars are utilized and is available 24/7. The visualizations and tables are all highly interactive and we invite you to explore. As stewards of the Commonwealth’s financial data, the Office of the Comptroller is committed to expanding transparency in the utilization of public funds and we hope you will agree that this is a great step in that direction – please visit often as we expand the system in the coming months.
The Office of the Comptroller is a uniquely independent and apolitical overseer of more than $60 billion in governmental and other funding sources annually. In addition, the Comptroller oversees the Commonwealth’s expenditure and payroll management and major audit functions ensuring security, transparency, accountability, and service delivery across all branches of state government.
