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 year.

Using this information

  1. Prepare in general journal form the necessary entries in the governmental activities and appropriate fund journals for each transaction. Explanations may be omitted. For each entry you prepare, name the fund in which the entry should be made.

2. Serial Bond Debt Service Fund Journal Entries and Financial Statements. As of December 31, 2016, Sandy Beach had $9,500,000 in 4.5 percent serial bonds outstanding.

The serial bonds pay interest semiannually on January 1 and July 1, with $500,000 in bonds being retired on each interest payment date. Resources for payment of interest are transferred from the General Fund, and the debt service fund levies property taxes in an amount sufficient to cover principal payments.
