When you set up the budget, I suggest you use the annual view, allow rollovers, and set the annual budgeted amount in the first month, and zero for the remaining months. It's not as difficult as it seems: set the first month to 0, select gear icon and apply..., then enter the correct amount. To watch the budget as a yearly total, I suggest you select Yearly in the graph view.
