​​​Electronic filing is preferred. Save your audit or review report as a PDF and then email all filing documents to municipalfilings.sos@sos.oregon.gov. Once your report is emailed, we do not need a paper copy mailed.

If your PDF file is larger than 50MB please contact our office for alternate filing options as it is too large to send via email. A ShareFile link will be provided where the file can be uploaded.​

Please include the name of the municipality (and customer number, if known) in the subject line.

Each of the required items should be submitted as a separate document. If the auditor has communicated the deficiencies within the audit report, please save that communication as a separate document and include both in the email submission.

Download and save forms to your computer before completing. This will allow all functionality to work properly and amounts to accurately total. Submit the completed forms to municipalfilings.sos@sos.oregon.gov.

If the required report and documents cannot be emailed, mail a paper copy to our office.

Secretary of State, Audits Division

We will use the email or postmark date as the filing date. ​​
