Pledged Future Revenues

GASB 48 makes a basic distinction between sales of receivables and future revenues, on the one hand, and the pledging of receivables or future revenues to repay a borrowing (a collateralized borrowing), on the other. The following table provides the pledged future revenue information for Sample Agency’s bonds for which a revenue pledge exists.

Pledged Future Revenue Information GO Bonds Revenue Bonds
Government Activities Government Activities Business-Type Activities Component Units
Pledged Revenue Required for Future Principal and Interest on Existing Revenue Bonds (1) $1,968.42 $1,968,281.42 $3,111,075.12 $  233,019.95
Term of Commitment Year Ending 08/31 (2) 2028 2028 2047 2041
Percentage of Revenue Pledged (3) 29.7% 79.7% 95.6% 100.0%
Current Year Pledged Revenue 2,748.23 2,748,490.23 40,255,735.09 1,000,971.87
Current Year Principal and Interest Paid 250.52 250,453.52 99,153.12 18,700.56

Pledged revenue sources:

  • Governmental activities — state appropriations and rental income on office facilities
  • Business-type activities — operating income from residential housing and bookstores
  • Component Units — sales and services of XYZ Foundation
(1) Schedule 2C.
(2) Year of final revenue bond maturity. See Schedule 2A — Miscellaneous Bond Information.
(3) For gross pledge, this is 100 percent (gross pledged revenue divided by gross pledged revenue). The net pledge calculation is net pledged revenue divided by total pledged revenue and other sources. See Schedule 2D – Analysis of Funds Available for Debt Service for further information.

Important: Enter all amounts as dollars and cents.

Build America Bonds

Build America Bonds (BABs) were created in 2009 as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Taxable bonds were issued by governmental entities (including state agencies) as Tax Credit BABs or as Direct Payment BABs:

  • Tax Credit BABs provide a federal tax credit to investors equal to 35 percent of the interest received from the bond issuer.
  • Direct Payment BABs provide a direct federal reimbursement to state and local governmental issuers equal to 35 percent of the interest paid on the bonds.

Authority to issue BABs expired on Dec. 31, 2010. Under the Budget Control Act of 2011, across-the-board sequestration took effect on March 1, 2013 — reducing the federal subsidy percentage for BABs interest payments.

A balance of $440.0 million of Taxable Revenue Bonds issued under the Direct Payment BABs program remained outstanding at fiscal year-end.
