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.

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).

Notes

Data Sources: For a discussion of the sources of the government revenue data used here read How We Got the Data for usgovernmentrevenue.com.

Actual vs. Budgeted: Government revenue data in usgovernmentrevenue.com includes historical revenue and also future revenue in three categories: budgeted, estimated, and guesstimated. Records of recent revenue are more detailed than historical records of earlier times.

For a table of data sources see Government Spending Data: Sources.

Government Revenue Updates: The last update to federal revenue was made in April 2013. The last update to state revenue was made in December 2012. The last update to local government revenue was made in July 2011.

Typically, federal revenue is updated from the president’s budget each February. State and local revenue is updated when published by the US Census Bureau, in the fall for the previous year’s state revenue (e.g., November 2012 for 2011 revenue) and in the early summer for local revenue (e.g., July 2012 for 2010 revenue).
