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 Montana, the estimated reporting rate is as follows:
Cities/counties: 7 out of 37 CAFRs or financial statements we examined provided information on tax abatement programs in accordance with GASB Statement No.77.
School districts: 12 out of 86 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 MT. You can also get a CSV file of the localities in MT that did not make any tax abatement disclosures in their annual financial reports.
Why is there little or no reporting from school districts?: Many of Montana's school districts do not produce financial audits.
The state does not post local financial audits in an online repository.
