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.
