This study was carried out to examine“the Impact of State Joint Local Government Account (SJLGA) on the Transformation of Rural Areas with particular reference to Takum Local Government Area, Taraba State, Nigeria”. The study adopted a survey research designed where a primary method of data collection was used in which a sample of 60 close-ended questionnaires were prepared based on the research questions and administered to the respondents in the study area.  However, for the purpose of analysis, the study uses 5-Point Likert Scale Rating in the form of tables to analyze respondent information. Based on the findings the study concludes that the implementation of the State Joint Local Government Account (SJLGA) has significantly affected the financial autonomy of local governments in Taraba State, including Takum Local Government Area. The system has limited the ability of local governments to control their funds and hindered their development initiatives. The level of development in rural areas, particularly in Takum Local Government Area, has been adversely affected due to the diversion and mismanagement of funds from the SJLGA, leading to inadequate provision of basic amenities and infrastructure. However, in line with the conclusion this study recommends that the government should promote transparency and accountability in the disbursement and utilization of funds from the SJLGA. Regular audits and public disclosure of financial transactions will help build trust between the government and citizens, and the allocation of resources from the SJLGA should be equitable, ensuring that rural areas receive their fair share of funds to support development initiatives. This will help bridge the development gap between urban and rural areas....
