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 Kansas, the estimated reporting rate is as follows:

Cities/counties: 12 out of 22 CAFRs or financial statements we examined provided information on tax abatement programs in accordance with GASB Statement No.77.

School districts: 6 out of 116 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 KS. You can also get a CSV file of the localities in KS that did not make any tax abatement disclosures in their annual financial reports.

Why is there little or no reporting from school districts?: Most Kansas's school districts do not use Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, so GASB 77 does not apply.

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