Question Description

Complete the following problems and exercises, showing all work and submit in the classroom.

1. Long-term Liability Transactions. Following are a
number of unrelated transactions for the Village of Centerville, some
of which affect governmental activities at the government-wide level.
None of the transactions have been recorded yet.

  • The General Fund collected and transferred $750,000 in tax
    collections to the debt service fund; $600,000 of this amount was used
    to retire outstanding serial bonds and the remainder was used to make
    the interest payment on the outstanding serial bonds.
  • A $5,000,000 issue of serial bonds to finance a capital project was
    sold at 102 plus accrued interest in the amount of $50,000. The accrued
    interest and the premium were recorded in the debt service fund. Accrued
    interest on bonds sold must be used for interest payments; the premium
    is designated by state law for eventual payment of bond principal.
  • The debt service fund made a $110,000 capital lease payment, of
    which $15,809 was interest. Funds used to make the lease payment came
    from a capital grant received by the special revenue fund.
  • Tax-supported serial bonds with a $2,800,000 par value were issued
    in cash to permit partial refunding of a $3,500,000 par value issue of
    term bonds. The difference was settled with $700,000 that had been
    accumulated in prior years in a debt service fund. Assume that the term
    bonds had been issued several years earlier at par.
  • Four months prior to year-end, 6 percent special assessment bonds totaling $500,
  • 000 were issued to fund a streetlight improvement project in a local
    subdivision. The bonds are secondarily backed by the village. The first
    $25,000 installment will be due from property owners six months after
    the initial bond issuance, but no debt payments are due in the first
