Annual Financial Information Report (AFIR)
Annual Report due by October 31st of each year for all Municipalities and Counties in North Carolina

The Annual Financial Information Report form and process has changed beginning with fiscal year ended June 30, 2012.  This form was redesigned in consultation with representatives of local governments, state agencies, Legislative Research, the N.C. League of Municipalities and the N.C. Association of County Commissioners.  The US Census and the Department of State Treasurer have partnered to provide a website and data upload process for municipalities and counties in North Carolina.

It is important that you read the PDF instructions below and the instructions on the first tab of the form itself.  An AFIR Feedback Form also is supplied below to aid us in making improvement to the process next year.  If you have any questions, please call 919-814-4299.
