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 Connecticut, the estimated reporting rate is as follows:

Cities/counties: 44 out of 171 CAFRs or financial statements we examined provided information on tax abatement programs in accordance with GASB Statement No.77.

School districts: 0 out of 17 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 CT. You can also get a CSV file of the localities in CT that did not make any tax abatement disclosures in their annual financial reports.

Why is there little or no reporting from school districts?: Connecticut is a New England state: Local school districts do not produce financial audits (only the few regionalized ones do).

The state does not post local financial audits in an online repository.
