Question

The schedule that follows pertaining to governmental capital assets was excerpted from the annual report of Urbana, Illinois (with changed dates):
A related schedule indicates the following:
Capital outlays ... $ 3,358,611
Depreciation .... (2,268,579)
$ 1,090,032
1. As required by GASB Statement No. 34, the annual report includes reconciliations between: (1) total fund balance, governmental funds (per the funds statements), and net position of governmental activities (per the government-wide statements); and (2) net change in fund balance, governmental funds (per the funds statements), and change in net position of governmental activities (per the government-wide statements). In what way would the data provided in the accompanying schedules be incorporated into the two reconciliations? Be specific.
2. The amount deleted from the equipment account ($452,194) exactly equals the amount deleted from the related accumulated depreciation account. Is this merely a coincidence? Would the amounts always be the same?
3. Based simply on the amount of equipment retired, what would you estimate to be the average useful life of the equipment? Is thisreasonable?
