Local Governments

Chapter 218, Florida Statutes, prescribes financial management and reporting requirements for local governments, which include counties, municipalities, and special districts. This website provides resources to local governments in fulfilling their reporting requirements. From this website, local governments can also access the Local Government Electronic Reporting (LOGER) system to submit their Annual Financial Report (AFR) required by statutes.

 

Annual Financial Reports/LOGER

The deadline for submitting the Annual Financial Report (AFR) to the Department of Financial Services for local governments is nine months after the close of the fiscal year. For those governments that close:

  • March 31, the deadline is December 31.
  • June 30, the deadline is March 31.
  • September 30, the deadline is June 30.
  • December 31, the deadline is September 30.

Submit the AFR using the Local Government Electronic Reporting (LOGER) system.
