That guidance depends upon whether special-purpose entities are engaged in activities that are governmental-type, business-type only, or fiduciary-type only. Discuss the guidance and list required basic financial statements for:
a. Governments engaged in governmental-type activities. Include those that are engaged in governmental- and business-type activities, more than one governmental activity, and only one governmental activity.
b. Governments engaged in business-type activities only.
c. Governments engaged in fiduciary-type activities only.
