The Town's Fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30.  Budgets are typically adopted a couple of months before the start of the Fiscal year. Fiscal years are numbered by the year they end in.  For example a fiscal year that begins on July 1, 2000 and ends on June 30, 2001 would be FY2001.

Audits typically are completed about 6 months after the close of the fiscal year.  South Carolina State Law requires all municipalities and county governments to have an independent annual audit to ensure proper collection and distribution of funds.
