The CommonCents application is designed to work as intuitively as possible, and relies on standard navigation and information display techniques.

The financial data that drives CommonCents can be confusing and hard to interpret. Every effort has been made to make the information as easy to understand as possible. The glossary provides definitions for state accounting terms used in CommonCents.

If you have any questions or suspect there may be a malfunction on the site, please use the feedback form to contact the Comptroller Help Desk.
