We at SAO extend our thanks to every local government that filed its fiscal year 2021 annual report on time! This year, approximately 88 percent of local governments—2 percent more than last year—met the annual filing deadline, proving once again that compliance, accountability and transparency matter in Washington state.
We’ve updated the infographic below to show which governments filed on time, which filed late, and which haven’t filed yet. How does your county compare to the rest? The graphic still updates daily, so check back as often as you’d like.
If you are still working on your annual report, we encourage you to file it as soon as possible. Although the deadline has passed, state law still requires you to submit an annual report. The content of this report plays an important role in your audit and in our ability to publish financial information for the legislature and the public.
Our Office is here to help you file, correct and resubmit your report, or answer any other questions.
- We have helpful filing resources on our BARS webpages and a library of videos about online filing
- For technical accounting, reporting or auditing questions, please use the HelpDesk.
- For questions about the online filing system, such as resolving flags or variances, please email us at LGCSfeedback@sao.wa.gov.
For comments or questions about the filing statistics or about how data is published, reach out to SAO’s Center for Government Innovation at Center@sao.wa.gov.
