App.A:4-25. Budget provisions
7. There shall be included in every budget or tax ordinance of any municipality which shall issue bonds under this act adopted in or for any subsequent fiscal year, unless and until all of such bonds and any renewals or extensions thereof shall have been canceled and paid in full in cash, an appropriation under the caption "reserve for uncollected taxes" , sufficient in amount so that the anticipated cash receipts for the fiscal year for which such budget or tax ordinance is adopted (hereinafter referred to as the "current fiscal year" ), estimated and computed in accordance with section eight of this act, shall equal or exceed the sum of (a) the amounts of all appropriations included in such budget or tax ordinance (except such appropriation under the caption, "reserve for uncollected taxes" ), (b) the amounts due or to become due for school, county, state and local district taxes prior to the end of the current fiscal year, (c) the amounts required for the payment of principal and interest during the current fiscal year upon any indebtedness incurred for the creation of any municipal enterprise or utility and of the operating and upkeep cost of such municipal enterprise or utility during such current fiscal year, (d) the amounts required for the payment of principal and interest during the current fiscal year on bonds payable or to be payable in whole or in part out of special assessments on property specially benefited and (e) the amounts of any other anticipated current expenditures of the municipality for current fiscal year, each of the items of which sum is hereinafter for brevity referred to as "lawful yearly expenditure" . In the event that the exact amount of any such lawful yearly expenditure shall not be known at the time of the adoption of such budget or tax ordinance, then the amount thereof shall be estimated by resolution of the governing body of the municipality; provided, however, that such estimate shall not be less in amount than the amount of such lawful yearly expenditure for the next preceding fiscal year. In the event that any lawful yearly expenditure shall be included under any one of the above subdivisions (a), (b), (c), (d) and (e), then it shall not be necessary to include such lawful yearly expenditure under any other of said subdivisions. In the event that the liability and actual cash disbursements of the municipality in the current fiscal year for lawful yearly expenditures shall exceed the actual cash receipts in such current fiscal year applicable to such lawful yearly expenditures, there shall be included in the budget or tax ordinance of the municipality adopted in or for the following fiscal year, an appropriation under the caption "cash deficit of preceding year" in an amount equal to or exceeding the amount of such excess of liability and cash disbursements over cash receipts.
