90-day Extensions for Local Governments Granted

In accordance with Executive Order, Governor Kemp has ordered that certain local governments in Georgia receive a 90-day extension to the submission deadline for annual audit reports to the Department of Audits and Accounts (DOAA) and the Report of Local Government Finance to the Department of Community Affairs (DCA).

Extensions on the submission deadlines for these statutorily required reports have been applied to local governments OCGA §36-81-7(d) & OCGA §36-81-8 with submission deadlines (six months after the conclusion of the local government’s fiscal year) between March 14, 2020 and 90 days following the expiration of the Public Health Emergency Declaration.

By virtue of this Executive Order, local governments do not need to request an extension from either DOAA or DCA for these specific reporting requirements. Affected local governments will not be considered delinquent on either of these requirements until the new due date.


If you have questions or concerns send an email to locgov@audits.ga.gov.
