State Tax Revenue Lost to Tax Abatement Programs 2018

Please note that data are cataloged by fiscal years -- you can switch to different years using the links below. For more info see our user guide.

Due to the vast differences in disclosure rates among local governments and incomplete data collection, the Revenue loss (local) numbers in this table do NOT represent the total revenue foregone by localities and are thus NOT comparable across states. Please refer also to the column "Number of localities reporting" in 2018 data when interpreting Revenue loss (local). We are in the process of adding more local data. If you have any questions about this table or the database, please email chris@goodjobsfirst.org .
