Indiana State Comptroller Tera Klutz announced in September she would resign, effective Nov. 30, 2023.

Gov. Eric Holcomb will name a new state comptroller Tuesday, replacing Tera Klutz, who announced her resignation two months ago.

Klutz announced in September that she would resign from the statewide office less than a year into her new, four-year term.

In a statement, she said she wanted to return to the private sector and spend more time with family.

The position recently changed its name from state auditor to state comptroller, a switch Klutz spearheaded to more accurately reflect the office’s duties. And Klutz is the third consecutive auditor/comptroller to leave office early.

Her replacement can serve out her term, which expires in 2026.
