The guidance is included in Q&A format in Implementation Guide No. 2018-1, Implementation Guidance Update — 2018. The update contains new guidance on GASB standards on pensions, other postemployment benefits, the statistical section, regulatory reporting, and tax abatement disclosures.

Requirements in the implementation guide take effect for reporting periods beginning after June 15, 2018.
