For more course tutorials visit www.newtonhelp.com

P. 4-2 1. The state in which Beanville is located collects sales taxes for its cities and other local governments. The state permits small merchants to remit sales taxes quarterly. The state sales tax rate is 6 percent. In December 2016, city merchants collected $50 million in sales taxes that


they remitted to the state on January 15, 2017. The state, in turn, transferred the taxes to the city on February 15, 2017. 2. In December 2016, the federal government awarded Beanville a reimbursement grant of $500,000 to train law-enforcement agents. The city had applied for the grant in January of that year. The city may incur allowable costs any time after receiving notification of the award. In 2017, the city incurred $400,000 in allowable costs and was reimbursed for $350,000. It was reimbursed for the $50,000 balance in February 2018. In January and February 2018, it incurred the remaining $100,000 in allowable costs and was reimbursed for them in April 2018. 3. In December 2016 the city levied property taxes of $1 billion for the calendar year 2017. The taxes are due June 30, 2017. The city collected these taxes as follows: 4. It estimates the balance of $32 million would be uncollectible. In addition, in the period from January 1 through February 28, 2017, the city collected $16 million in taxes that were delinquent as of December 31, 2016. In the period March 1 through June 30 2017, the city collected $8 million of taxes that were also delinquent as of December 31, 2016. 5. In December 2017 Beanville sold a city-owned warehouse to a private developer. Sales price was $4.2 million. The warehouse had cost $4 million when it was acquired 10 years earlier. It had an estimated useful life of 40 years (with no salvage value). 6. In December 2017, Beanville's city-owned radio station held its annual fund drive. A local business offered to match all pledges made on December 2, 2017, up to $50,000, assuming that the amount pledged was actually collected. Based on past experience the city estimates that 90 percent of the pledges will actually be collected. By year-end 2017, the city had collected $25,000 of the pledges, and in January and February it collected an additional $15,000. It received


$25,000 of the matching funds on February 15, 2018. Respond with respect only to the $50,000 in matching fund

P6-1 The financial statements of an actual capital projects fund leave it to the report reader to draw inferences on key transactions. The accompanying statements of the parks, recreations, and municipal capital improvement bond fund (a capital projects fund) were drawn from an annual report of Parkville. According to a note in the report (the only one pertaining to the fund), the fund is maintained “to account for bond proceeds to be utilized for the construction and refurbishment of parks and recreation facilities and the refurbishment of othermunicipal facilities.� 1. The variances in expenditures between budget and actual are substantial. What is the most likely explanation?

2. A schedule of long-term debt payable (in the statistical section of the report) indicates that only $7 million, of parks, recreation, and municipal capital improvement bonds were authorized and issued. How do you reconcile that amount with the proceeds from bonds payable reported in the statement of revenues, expenditures, and changes in fund balance?


3. Another schedule of transfers between funds (in the same section) indicates that $131 thousand was transferred to the general fund. What conclusions can you draw about whether interest on fund investments must be used either to repay the capital improvement bonds or to construct and refurbish city facilities? 4. How much of fund resources did the government spend during the year on capital improvements? 5. How do you explain the absence in the balance sheet of “construction in process?” 5. Why is a major portion of the fund balance “restricted?” -------------------------------------------------------------

P. 7-3 Which is the proper value to be assigned to certain donated assets? (This is a question for which answers cannot be found in either GASB pronouncements or in this text.) A city’s road maintenance department received “donations” of two types of assets: 1. From the county in which the city is located it received earthmoving equipment. The equipment had cost the county $800,000 when it was acquired five years earlier. Accounted for in a county proprietary fund, its book value, net of accumulated depreciation at the time of donation, was $500,000. Its fair market value was $530,000. 2. From the city’s own utility fund (a proprietary fund) it received motor vehicles that had cost the city $400,000 when acquired three years earlier. At the time of transfer, the vehicles were recorded on the utility’s books at $180,000, net of accumulated depreciation. Their fair market value was $225,000. a. At what value should the city record in its government-wide financial statements: (1) the earth-moving equipment, and (2) the motor vehicles?


b. Briefly justify your response, commenting on any apparent inconsistencies in the values assigned to each of the two types of assets. c. Comment on the significance of the resultant book values for decisions or assessments to be made by statement users.

EX. 8-4 Complete on a separate tab of Excel Both the reported value of long-term debt and periodic interest charges should be based on unamortized issue price (plus or minus unamortized premiums or discounts) and initial yield. The City of Fairfield issued $100 million of 20-year, 6 percent coupon bonds (3 percent per semiannual period) for $89.32 million. The price reflected a yield of 7 percent (3.5 percent period semiannual period). 1.Prepare entries to reflect how the following would be reported in the city’s government-wide statements: a. The issuance of the bond b. The first semiannual payment of interest c. The second semiannual payment of interest 2.

A city engaged in the following transactions during a year: 1. It acquired computer equipment at a cost of $40,000. It completed construction of a new jail, incurring $245,000 in new costs. In the previous year the city had incurred $2.5 million in construction costs. The project was accounted for in a capital projects fund 2. It sold for $16,000 land that it had acquired three years earlier for $28,000. 3. It traded in a four-year-old sanitation department vehicle for a new model. The old vehicle had initially cost $27,000, its carrying value at the time of trade was $17,000, and its market value was $13,000. The city paid an additional $39,000 cash for the new model. The fair value of the new model was $52,000.


Now let’s examine the results for Exercise 8-7, differentiating transactions of debt between the two entities. (a. = General Fund, b. = Governmentwide Statements) 1. City employees earned $7.7 million in vacation pay during the year, of which they took only $6.6 million. They may take the balance in the following three years. 2. The employees were paid $0.5 million for vacations that they had earned in previous years. 3. The city settled a claim brought against it during the year by a building contractor. The city agreed to pay $10 million immediately and $10 million at the end of the following year. 4. The city issued $100 million in general obligation bonds at par. 5. It paid $4 million in debt service. Of this, $3 million was for the first payment of interest, the balance for repayment of principal. -------------------------------------------------------------

P. 7-6 The schedule of capital assets has a significant impact on the reconciliations between fund and government-wide statements. 1. As required by GASB Statement No. 34, the annual report includes reconciliations between: (1) total fund balance, governmental funds (per the funds statements), and net position of governmental activities (per the government-wide statements); and (2) net change in fund balance, governmental funds (per the funds statements), and change in net position of governmental activities (per the government-wide statements). In what way would the data provided in the accompanying schedules be incorporated into the two reconciliations? Be specific. 2. The amount deleted from the equipment account ($452,194) exactly equals the amount deleted from the related accumulated depreciation account. Is this merely a coincidence?
