The table shows overall government receipts for the specified fiscal year. Revenue totals are aggregated for each major source of revenue.

  1. For the United States the table shows receipts for all levels of government—federal revenue, state revenue, and local revenue.
  2. For individual states the table shows receipts for state and local governments only.

All federal receipts prior to 2017, state revenue prior to 2015 and local revenue prior to 2014 are actual. More recent spending, including future years out to 2022, are budgeted, estimated, or guesstimated.

Federal receipts for 1962 and after are based on federal data on receipts in the president’s budget. State and local receipts—both for the United States as a whole and for individual states—for 1992 and after are derived from spending, revenue, and debt data in the Census Bureau’s census of state and local government finances.

Nationwide state and local revenue between 1971 and 1991 is obtained from Statistical Abstract of the United States.

Federal revenue prior to 1962 and state and local revenue prior to 1971 is obtained from Bicentennial Edition: Historical Statistics of the United States, Colonial Times to 1970.

You can use controls on the table to change the year or to drill down to view more detailed revenue information. You can also view the revenue data as percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Federal Deficit and Outlay Actuals for FY16

On October 14, 2016, the US Treasury reported in its Monthly Treasury Statement (and xls) for September that the federal deficit for FY 2016 ending September 30 was $587 billion. Here are the numbers, including total receipts, total outlays, and deficit compared with the numbers projected in the FY 2017 federal budget published in February 2016:

Federal Finances
FY 2016 Outcomes
Budget
billions
Outcome
billions
Receipts $3,336$3,267
Outlays$3,951$3,854
Deficit$616$587

usfederalbudget.us now shows the new numbers for total FY 2016 outlays and receipts on its Estimate vs. Actual page.

The Monthly Treasury Statement includes ""Table 4: Receipts of the United States Government, September 2015 and Other Periods." This table of receipts by source is used for usgovernmentspending.com to post federal receipt actuals for FY 2016.

The Monthly Treasury Statement includes "Table 9. Summary of Receipts by Source, and Outlays by Function of the U.S. Government, September 2016 and Other Periods".   This table of outlays by function makes it possible for usgovernmentspending.com to estimate actual outlays by "subfunction" for FY 2016 by factoring budgeted amounts by the difference between budgeted and actual "function" amounts where actual outlays by subfunction cannot be gleaned from the Monthly Treasury Statement.

Final detailed FY 2016 numbers will not appear on usgovernmentspending.com until the FY 2018 federal budget is published in February 2017 with the actual outlays for FY 2016 in Historical Table 3.2--Outlays by Function and Subfunction.
