The Coming Transparency Wave: GASB 77

The extensive data required to be disclosed by Statement 77, along with national media attention on each new announcement by the White House, will drive greater demand for transparency and accountability from governments on the use of tax abatements and their impact on other programs and priorities.

Message from NASC's President

I still remember when I was newly appointed to the position of Pennsylvania state comptroller in 2007. There is so much to do it can be overwhelming at first. So I asked for advice from the outgoing comptroller, and his advice was simple and effective. He said, "get involved in NASACT." I didn't understand the wisdom of those simple words at the time, but I've come to really value our association.
