A city acquires 1 million of public safety emergency communication
A city acquires $1 million of public safety emergency communication equipment by entering into a capital lease. The city divides its first rent payment of $ 135,868 between lease interest and lease principal as follows:
Lease interest ... $ 60,000
Lease principal . $ 75,868

The city comptroller is not sure how to report the lease payment on the government-wide statement of activities—specifically whether all, none, or a portion of the lease payment should be reported as a public safety expense. What is your advice?
