Not sure where you live but you should be able to find a local plumber through this service, Angies List! You may need to pull the toilet and reset with new wax seal ect.. Put a paper towel under the angle valve to see if water is dripping. Also put toilet paper around base of toilet to see if water shows up after flushing.

Are you a member of Angie's List. If so go to that site and search for local plumbers. Angie's List Answers is a way to get advice from professionals such as how-to or product reviews from professionals who have tried it.

If you wipe up all of the water and don't use the toilet for quite a while does the water return? If so it's a supply or tank issue, if not probably a seal issue at the wax ring. If you are all handy you can take a little time to diagnose and then repair it yourself. A new supply line is only $4-8 dollars depending on type and length. If it's a valve problem you may have to call a plumber if it's soldered to the pipe. If it's laking from the underside of the tank a new rubber gasket is needed which cost $1-2.
