In the coverage of the net cost of governmental activities, the general revenues available include taxes, intergovernmental, and investment earnings. Therefore, the net cost of the federal tasks is typically covered by interest income, inter-jurisdictional revenues, sales, and property tax.
The state receives income substantially from taxing authority, not via incorporating interest from other sources, like selling services, including power and water. In order to be effective, governments must be run as non-profit organizations. Still, to do so, they must transparently account for all revenues and expenses and provide that information to the people they serve.
If you want an accurate and effective budget process, you need to know how much money you’ll have coming in each month rather than how much money you’ll have from one-time transactions or unique sources. Governments must accurately foresee their general income and the expenses of their operations and initiatives. They must do this in both ways.
