County Accountants Can Go
Ahead With New Budgets
The Tribune Bureau
Sir Walter Hotel
Raleigh, June 9.—lt is not’ neces
sary'for 4he county accountants to
Wait to make up their budgets until
i a complete settlement of the 1926
taxes has been made as -some seem to
think, especially in those counties
where the sale of land for taxes has
been halted by injunction proceedings,
according to the county government
advisory commission here. For it is
merely necessary for the county ae-
I countant to show the amount of un
| collected taxes on his balance sheet,
and then he can go ahead and make
up his budget accordingly.
But although this has been ex
plained to the county commissioners
and others from time to time by the
advisory commission there are etill
indications that there is much con
fusion iu the minds of county officials
as to the procedure to be followed with
regard to county fiscal matters in
those counties where restraining or
ders have been issued, according to
reports being received by the commis
Thus the county accountants and
commissioners are in error if they
think it is necessary to delay the
making up of the county budgets
either to await the sale of land for
taxes or because of injunctions, or
for any other reason, since the law
requires that the budget be made up
in June. And because the budget is
purely theoretical at the time it is
made up, it is not necessary to have
anything more than the estimates on
the balance sheet.
Thus all the county accountant
needs to complete his budget esti
mates is a balance sheet, which will
show among the assets the uncollected
taxes for the year 1926. The ques
tion of settlement by the sheriff or
tax collector does not enter into these
proceedings at this time.

ties of the county and sub-divisions
, for the next fiscal year, and is based
on infatuation already furnished him
by. the beads of departments and of
ficers in charge of functions. These
| figures have to do only with estimated
for the next fiscal year,
(which begins July.
A second division of the budget is
jail itemized of the revenue
|to be available during the ensuing
I fiscal year from sources other than
I tax levies. In analyzing the assets
according to his balance sheet, the
county accountant should bear in '
mind, however, that a portion of the
uncollected taxes showing in the bal
ance sheet may be actually uncollecta
ble by reason of insolvents, errors and
overcharges and tax sales. This es
timate of uncollectables may be based
on information furnished by the sher
iff or tax collector, and on previous
experience with such items.
Third, any unencumbered balance of
the revenues of the current fiscal year
on hand June 30th as reflected in
this balance sheet must also .be in
cluded in the budget estimate.
When these two last named di
visions of the budget estimate are set
up, the excess of the estimated ex
penditures for the next fiscal year
over the revenue to be available from
sources other than tax levies and the
unencumbered balance, if any, will
represent the amount to be provided
by the tax levy.
