Note: The table includes Borden County and nine counties with closest population numbers based on 2018 U.S. Census Bureau population data. Tax-supported debt does not include revenue debt and lease-purchase obligations. Some counties provide health care, transportation, drainage or other services directly, while others do so through separate hospital districts or authorities, toll road authorities, drainage districts or other political subdivisions. The comparison does not reflect debt of separate political subdivisions, even when they have the same boundaries as the counties.

Borden County Tax-Supported Debt Per Capita Outstanding at Fiscal Year End: 10-Year Trend

Note: Reflects debt in 2018 dollars divided by estimated population in the relevant year. Some debt issued before 2008 may not be reflected.

Authorized But Unissued Tax-Supported Debt

After voters approve tax-supported debt for a local entity in an election, the entity applies to the Attorney General (OAG) to approve issuance before debt is issued. Typically, the entity does not apply for the OAG to approve the total debt package at once, but rather over time so that it can manage the projects and reduce interest expense. Authorized but unissued tax-supported debt totals are the remaining voter approved tax-supported debt that the entity has not issued yet and may be issued in the future.

An Introduction to Understanding

Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports

When you’re ready to learn about a public entity’s fiscal health, you’ll find a great deal of information in comprehensive annual financial reports (CAFRs) and other yearly reports. Often posted online alongside other financial information, CAFRs report an entity’s accounting statements, debts and other key information for the past year.

But sometimes that information can be tricky to find – and tough to understand. Because of that, our office compiled some tips for locating an entity’s CAFRs and for understanding them. You’ll learn how all CAFRs have certain similarities and when and why different entities’ CAFRs will differ in key ways. Plus, we detail strategies for pinpointing the debt, expenditure and revenue information you need to hold a government entity accountable.

Note that the data in the following publications is presented as of the dates indicated in the publications and may not reflect debt, population or other data as of any subsequent date. For further or more current information, see the applicable entity’s web site or its most recent filings at Electronic Municipal Market Access (EMMA®). The Comptroller does not control or guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or currency of any such site. When you access any such site, you will be leaving the Comptroller’s website.
