Financial Reports

The Annual Comprehensive Financial Report is prepared and presented by the Columbus City Auditor, statutorily described as the City's chief accounting officer. This Annual Financial Report includes the City’s financial position and results of operations, as well as demographic and statistical information to help the reader understand the financial condition of the City for each fiscal year ending on December 31st.

Additionally, Ohio law requires that all public entities undergo an annual financial audit. The financial statements have been verified by an independent, external auditor as required by law and in order to ensure the financial statements fairly present the financial position of the City of Columbus.

This report fulfills these duties and is distributed by the City Auditor's Office to approximately 100 recipients, including civic associations, banks, brokers, rating agencies, schools, libraries, university students, and city, state, and federal officials.
