Government Accounting


The Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB) issues three pronouncements that amend Statement of Federal Financial Accounting Standards (SFFAS) no. 7, Accounting for Revenue and Other Financing Sources. The changes relate to the elimination of certain tax revenue transaction disclosures by the IRS, the Customs Service and others (SFFAS no. 20), reporting corrections of errors and changes in accounting principles (SFFAS no. 21) and certain requirements for reconciling obligations and net cost of operations (SFFAS no. 21).
