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 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.
