We estimated the reporting rate among local governments for each state using 2018 and 2019 data. This is to gauge how much data is available in that state.
For Alabama, the estimated reporting rate is as follows:
Cities/counties: 15 out of 23 CAFRs or financial statements we examined provided information on tax abatement programs in accordance with GASB Statement No.77.
School districts: 1 out of 119 CAFRs or financial statements we examined provided information on tax abatement programs in accordance with GASB Statement No.77.
Concerned about the lack of disclosure? Check out the roadmap on GASB 77 compliance we created for AL. You can also get a CSV file of the localities in AL that did not make any tax abatement disclosures in their annual financial reports.
Why is there little or no reporting from school districts?: Alabama shields property and sales tax for educational purposes from tax abatements.
