Question: Charter City issued 100 million of 6 percent 20 year general

Charter City issued $100 million of 6 percent, 20-year general obligation bonds on January 1, 2014. The bonds were sold to yield 6.2 percent and hence were issued at a discount of $2.27 million (i.e., at a price of $97.73 million). Interest on the bonds is payable on July 1 and January 1 of each year. On July 1, 2014, and January 1, 2015, the city made its required interest payments of $3 million each.

2. How much interest expense should the city report on its government-wide statements for the year ending December 31, 2014? (It might be helpful to prepare appropriate journal entries.)
