Starting with the 1986 budget, the Office of Management and Budget provides six years of estimated receipts for each revenue source extending from the fiscal year in which the federal budget is published to five years into the future. For instance, the 1986 budget historical tables included estimates for FY85, FY86, FY87, FY88, FY89, and FY90. Starting with FY90, OMB will have made six estimates of revenue for each year before the actual receipts for a fiscal year are reported.
The table shows overall budgeted federal revenues for the specified fiscal year, as estimated in the historical tables in several presidential budgets. You can compare these estimates with the actual revenue for the fiscal year as reported in the budget historical tables after the specified fiscal year is over.
If the “actual” year shows many values as budgeted, it is because the details of actual receipts for the latest year have not yet been released.
You can change the year or drill down to view more detailed revenue information.
Data Sources: Federal revenue from Budget of the United States Government.
