The complete coverage you need.

State and local government audit and accounting is changing rapidly. Stay updated with the most current guidance.

Featuring insights and best practices for some of the more complex areas such as leases, fiduciary activities, pensions and postemployment benefits other than pensions (OPEB), this authoritative guide provides complete coverage of audit and accounting considerations critical for both preparers and auditors.

Due to the timing of the effective dates of SAS Nos. 134-140, this edition of the guide has been updated to reflect changes as a result of SAS Nos. 134-141. For auditors that are not early implementing SAS Nos. 134 – 140, it will be necessary for auditors to look back to the 2020 AICPA Audit and Accounting Guide State and Local Governments (as of April 1, 2020) for the auditing guidance and illustrative auditor reporting in effect prior to SAS Nos. 134-140. The 2020 edition of the guide remains available in all formats in the AICPA store through www.future.aicpa.org. This edition of the guide is relevant to auditors that have implemented SAS Nos. 134 – 140 early and generally for all audits of financial statements for periods ending on or after December 15, 2021 (or as specified by the individual standard).

Topics covered also include:

  • Financial reporting and the financial reporting entity
  • Revenue and expense recognition
  • Capital asset accounting
  • The elements of net position
  • Accounting for fair value
  • Municipal securities offerings
  • Tax abatements

Updates

The changes in this edition of the guide for SAS Nos. 134-140 are significant and primarily are found in chapters 4, 13, 15, 16, and 17 and cover areas including auditor reporting, the auditor’s responsibilities relating to other information included in annual reports, the revised concept of materiality, and other changes necessary to reflect the new standards and related amendments. The changes made to this edition of the guide are identified in the Schedule of Changes appendix. Additionally, all the illustrative auditor’s reports included in chapters 16 and 17 and the appendixes of chapter 13 have been updated to reflect the new auditor reporting model.

Key Topics
