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 2018
Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). The CAFR, 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.
