Notes

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.

Budget Updates: The president’s budget is typically published each year in February.

State and Local Finances for FY 2017

On November 1, 2019 we updated the state and local spending and revenue for FY 2017 using the new Census Bureau State and Local Government Finances summaries for FY 2017 released on October 30, 2019.  This includes state and local spending for the United States as a whole and the 50 individual states and the District of Columbia.

State and local spending and revenue for FY2017 are now actual historical spending as reported by the Census Bureau.  Previously state spending and revenue for FY2017 were actual, and local spending and revenue were estimated.  The following table shows the difference between estimated and actual local spending and revenue for FY2017:

FY 2017Estimated
$ billion
Actual
$ billion
Local Spending$1,850$1,895
Local Revenue$1,254$1,335

The Census Bureau proposes to update revised state and local finances for 2016 in December 2019

We have updated the "guesstimated" state and local finances for FY2018-24 as indicated in our "guesstimate" blog entries.

UPDATE 11/04/2019:

We have updated data for individual local government units with data for 2017.
