TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Acting state comptroller Marc Larkins is leaving office later this month.

Gov. Chris Christie’s office said Friday Larkins told the governor he planned to leave state service for the private sector this year. Larkins later decided his last day would be Aug. 28.

Christie named Larkins acting comptroller in 2013. The Legislature created the office to investigate state government in 2007.

Larkins previously served as chief executive officer of the New Jersey Schools Development Authority.

As comptroller Larkins issued reports including one this year that found 3,771 taxpayers got full rebates under a homestead tax credit program even though their properties had multiple units.

Larkins is the latest Christie appointee to leave office. In June, the administration announced the departure of the treasurer, health commissioner and banking and insurance commissioner.
