Workshop Topics:
Governmental accounting concepts build off of general accounting concepts and introduce a level of complexity that municipal tax collectors and treasurers are required to understand and apply. This workshop is designed as a review of basic general accounting concepts and ties them to governmental accounting concepts, showing similarities and (more importantly) the difference between the two methods.
