Grove Township issued $50,000 of bond anticipation notes at face amount in 20X0 and placed the

proceeds into its capital projects fund. All legal steps were taken to refinance the notes, but Grove was

unable to consummate refinancing. In the capital projects fund, what account should be credited to

record the $50,000 proceeds?

a. Other financing sources control.

b. Revenues control.

c. Deferred revenues.

d. Bond anticipation notes payable.

Because we record the $50,000, even though the $50,000 is not available until you have the ability to refinance. Until then, it should be recorded as a liability in the fund receiving the money. The notes are "anticipated", not realized. Small chance that you will see this on the exam.
