Cities/counties: 47 out of 89 CAFRs or financial statements we examined provided information on tax abatement programs in accordance with GASB Statement No.77.

School districts: 71 out of 166 CAFRs or financial statements we examined provided information on tax abatement programs in accordance with GASB Statement No.77.
