State of Texas Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR)

The State of Texas Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) is a set of financial statements for a state, municipality or other governmental entity that comply with the accounting requirements established by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB). It must be audited by an independent auditor using generally accepted government auditing standards.

The CAFR consists of three sections:

  • Introductory — orients and guides the reader through the report
  • Financial — presents the entity's basic financial statements as well as notes to the statements and the independent auditors' report
  • Statistical — provides additional financial and statistical data, including data about financial trends that may better inform the reader about the government's activities
