County governments—along with municipal governments and special districts—are required by Part III of Chapter 218, Florida Statutes to report Annual Financial Reports to Florida's Department of Financial Services using uniform accounting practices and procedures. These reports include total revenues and expenditures for each local government, and represent fiscal years beginning October 1st of each year and ending the following September 30th.
Taxes (which mostly consist of property taxes) and charges account for more than 60 percent of county government revenues statewide. Charges for services include fees and other charges pertaining to any of the multitude of services provided by county governments, including utilities, inspections, tolls, library services, and court services, just to name a select few. Other sources of revenue most often include proceeds from sales and refunds and donations from both public and private contributors.
