Filing workshops scheduled across Washington

The State Auditor’s Office is excited to bring back the popular annual report filing workshops. These workshops are designed to help local governments file their annual financial reports, and to meet the statutory requirement of submitting the report within 150 days of the close of their fiscal year.

New this year, participants can select a one-hour time slot for individualized assistance from a Local Government Support Specialist.  Laptops will be provided. If you bring the materials you need to file your report, you may be able to complete and file during your appointment.

If you are interested, sign up for a one-hour time slot online at the training EventBrite website. These workshops are offered at no cost to local government participants. If you have questions, please contact Heidi Walter at 360-725-5621. For more information and updates, visit our website.
