For Iowa, the estimated reporting rate is as follows:

Cities/counties: 61 out of 65 CAFRs or financial statements we examined provided information on tax abatement programs in accordance with GASB Statement No.77.

School districts: 297 out of 330 CAFRs or financial statements we examined provided information on tax abatement programs in accordance with GASB Statement No.77.
