Search Political Subdivision Financial Reports
Section 105.145 RSMo requires certain political subdivisions to file a financial report with the State Auditor's office.
Section 302.341 requires city, town villages or counties to report "an accounting of the percent of annual general operating revenue from
fines and court costs for traffic violations…" Counties are only required to file pursuant to Section 302.341.
According to rule, a political subdivision has 4 months to file a financial report if it is an unaudited financial report and 6 months to file if the financial report is a CPA audited financial report.
Each year, approximately 3,000 political subdivisions are sent a letter reminding them of this statutory requirement.
Each political subdivisions last report filed as of January 1, 2015 is available (if the report was filed within the last 5 years). In addition, every financial report filed since January 1, 2015 is also available online.
Prior years financial statement will be scanned and posted online per request submitted to the State Auditor's Office (SAO). All future filing will be scanned and available on the website within 3 to 5 business days of
being received by the SAO.
If there is no recent financial report for your requested political subdivision one has not been received by the SAO for any of the last 5 reporting year periods.
