ACCT 502 - GOVERNMENT AND NOT-FOR-PROFIT ACCOUNTING
Governmental Accounting provides an in-depth analysis of the nonprofit and state and municipal budgeting practices and policies within a dynamic regulatory environment for the graduate student. The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) guidelines and pronouncements will be integrated throughout the learning process. In addition, the impact of the lntemal Revenue Code (IRC) and State and Municipal Tax Codes will be examined throughout the course. Government and Not-for-Profit Accounting represents a significant portion of the US economy. The importance of both the collection of revenues via tax and fees will be discussed in-depth through case analysis. In addition, we will explore the disbursement process and the impact of governmental decisions on both the overall economy and the business community. We will also investigate the impact the Not-for-Profit segment has in fulfilling the needs of the overall economy. Accounting has been called the language of business because the financial statements communicate essential information to external users, primarily the investors and creditors. The purpose of this course is to integrate the most material concepts of governmental and not-for-profit accounting as well as the practical application of complex theoretical ideas into a business environment.
