Implementation guidance from GASB addresses questions about new standards for state and local government financial reporting.
Fair value and tax abatement disclosures are the primary issues for Implementation Guide No. 2016-1, Implementation Guidance Update—2016.
In addition, the guide reinstates certain previously superseded questions and answers that have been updated for the effects of newly issued standards on pensions and other post-employment benefits. Other practice issues also are addressed in the implementation guide, which takes effect for reporting periods beginning after June 15, 2016.
