The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) awarded a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to Tarrant County for its annual comprehensive financial report for the fiscal year ended 09/30/2020.  This was the twenty-first consecutive year that Tarrant County has achieved this prestigious award.  In order to be awarded a Certificate of Achievement, Tarrant County  must publish an easily readable and efficiently organized annual comprehensive financial report.  This report must satisfy both generally accepted accounting principles and applicable legal requirements.

A Certificate of Achievement is valid for a period of one year only.  We believe that our current annual comprehensive financial report continues to meet the Certificate of Achievement Program's requirements and we are submitting it to the GFOA to determine its eligibility for another certificate.
