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 Utah, the estimated reporting rate is as follows:

Cities/counties: 5 out of 31 CAFRs or financial statements we examined provided information on tax abatement programs in accordance with GASB Statement No.77.

School districts: 1 out of 41 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 UT. You can also get a CSV file of the localities in UT that did not make any tax abatement disclosures in their annual financial reports.

Why is there little or no reporting from school districts?: Utah's local governments rely on tax increment financing (TIF) for economic development; GASB 77's definitional ambiguity has caused under-reporting of TIFs.

Local government / school district financial audits are posted here.
