As for December 2009, SOkA Tachov had 1095 fonds containing 3,278 linear meters of archival records. The composition of the SOkA Tachov fonds is similar to other district archives. The largest fond currently deposited in the Archive is the Tachov District National Committee from 1945–1990, which presents a comprehensive view of the history of the district during the Communist era.
