The Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) is prepared and
presented by the Columbus City Auditor, statutorily
described as the City's chief accounting officer.
The PAFR is a reflection of our effort to keep you
informed about how your tax dollars are being spent.
This non-technical report summarizes the
financial activities of the City’s funds as reported in the City’s
Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. The annual financial report, also
located on our website is a detailed audited financial report including a full
disclosure of all material events.
In order to provide open access to City financial
information, to be "GREEN", and
to save expenses, all City of Columbus PAFR reports from 2018 forward are
available in Portable Document Format (PDF) format for viewing online. Just
select the PAFR for desired fiscal year. The
City issued its first PAFR in 2018.
