Tax expenditures have grown rapidly at both the federal and state level and gained significant fiscal impacts. Tax Expenditure Budget (TEB) provide an important policy tool to improve fiscal transparency and enhance accountability. While most states require the development of TEB, the contents, formats, and procedures of TEB vary significantly across the states, and therefore, the usefulness and impacts of states’ TEB are far from universal. This proposed research will examine the variations in states’ TEB requirements and study how states’ reporting requirements of tax expenditures are associated with various state characteristics.
