4. Tax collections of the current year’s levy totaled $1,459,000. The City also collected $132,000 in taxes from the prior year’s levy in the first 60 days after year end. (These delinquent collections had been anticipated prior to year-end.)
5. Personnel costs during the year were charged to the following appropriations in the amounts indicated. Encumbrances were not recorded for personnel costs. Because no liabilities currently exist for withholdings, you may ignore any FICA or federal or state income tax with holdings. (Expenditures charged to Miscellaneous should be treated as General Government expenses in the governmental activities general journal at the government wide level.)

General government ............................$ 411,000
Public safety .............................................635,000
Public works ............................................254,000
Health and welfare .................................439,000
Miscellaneous ...........................................11,100

6. Invoices for all items ordered during the prior year were received and approved for payment in the amount of $14,470. Encumbrances had been recorded in the prior year for these items in the amount of $14,000. The amount chargeable to each year’s appropriations should be charged to the Public Safety appropriation.

The following appropriations were affected.Actual Liability Estimated Liability General government $ 52,700 $ 52,200 Public safety Public works Health and welfare

8. Revenue other than taxes collected during the year consisted of licenses and permits, $373,000; intergovernmental revenue, $400,000; and $66,000 of miscellaneous revenues. For purposes of accounting for these revenues at the government-wide level, the intergovernmental revenues were operating grants and contributions for the Public Safety function. Miscellaneous revenues are not identifiable with any function and, therefore, are recorded as General Revenues at the government-wide level.
9. Payments on Vouchers Payable totaled $2,505,000. Additional information follows: The General Fund Fund Balance—Unassigned account had a credit balance of $96,900 as of December 31, 2019; no entries have been made in the Fund Balance—Unassigned account during 2020.

b. Prepare a budgetary comparison schedule for the General Fund of the City of Evergreen for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2020, as shown in Illustration 4–6. Do not prepare a government-wide statement of activities because other governmental funds would affect that statement.
