About Finance Departments

What happens to unspent funds or unanticipated revenues?

As a general rule, these funds are added to the entity's Fund Balance at the end of the fiscal year. The Fund Balance is the organization's reserve and may be referred to colloquially as a "rainy day" fund. In some cases, the entity's legislative body may direct the funds toward an unmet need, such as a capital improvement project.

What are general obligation bonds?

General obligation bonds are bonds issued by a state, county, or local government that are backed by that entity's full faith and credit. This means that the government has guaranteed that it will generate tax revenues in order to pay back the bonds. General obligation bonds are commonly used for schools, roads, and other public improvements, and they are usually exempt from state and local taxes.

What is a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report?
