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 Missouri, the estimated reporting rate is as follows:

Cities/counties: 34 out of 68 CAFRs or financial statements we examined provided information on tax abatement programs in accordance with GASB Statement No.77.

School districts: 135 out of 405 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 MO. You can also get a CSV file of the localities in MO that did not make any tax abatement disclosures in their annual financial reports.

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