The Federal Budget Deficit Picture

The other day the U.S. federal budget deficit for February was released, $203.5 billion, down $28 billion from Feb. 2012. In the first five months of the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1, the deficit is $494 billion, or down $87 billion for the same period a year ago.

Sequester budget cuts could reduce the debt further through the end of the fiscal year, Sept. 30, plus an improving economy means more revenues (on top of the tax hikes initiated beginning of the year.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates the deficit for F2013 will be $845 billion, down from $1.1 trillion in F2012 and F2009’s record $1.4 trillion.

So I thought I’d look back at the deficit picture the past few years and I’ll update this from time to time as I do with existing home sales.
