Why are my budget categories showing $0.00 spent?

I have jived and refreshed, logged out and back in but still my budget shows 0.00 spent for both my account and my boyfriends account. I have been on Clearcheckbook for about 6 months and this has never happened. I can go to reports and see what I have spent for the month but it shows 0.00 spent in budget. Is this a bug or did I change a setting or something? Also the Budget is taking a long time to load.

Update: I think I just figured out what happened. My date rollover is set for the 1st of every month. While it is still August 31st PST here apparently the date rollover is set on EST for this website and so my categories have rolled over back to 0.

Do you have the correct timezone set in settings?

I have set up budget also and the spent amount is not showing in the pie graph or the budget it self. I can go to report and see what the scheduled amount is for the month, but not day to day. Any help would be appreciated

You currently have 'Include Deposits' enabled for the budget. This means that any deposits made are subtracted from the amount spent. Since you have more deposits than you have withdrawals, your amount spent is 0. I would recommend unchecking the 'Include Deposits' option for the budgets to avoid confusion.
