In February 1954, The Daily Treasury Statement Discontinued Reporting Expenditures. The New Monthly Report Issued By The Treasury Department Was Based On Reports From Collecting And Disbursing Agencies And Is Considered More Accurate By The Treasury Because It Allows"The Necessary Time For Uniform Reporting Of Budget Results" (Daily Statement, February 17, 1954). Beginning In July 1960, "Net" Budget Receipts (And "Net" Budget Expenditures) Exclude Certain Interfund Transactions Which Are Included In Both Budget Receipts And Budget Expenditures. The Transactions Deducted Are Mainly Interest Payments To The Treasury By Government Corporations And Agencies. This Does Not Affect Budget Surplus Or Deficit. The Worksheets For This Variable Show The Old "Net" Figures, After June 1960 Called "Subtotal Receipts." It Is Believed That The Data Can Be Treated As A Continuous Series Since Deductions Are Very Small. From January 1962 On, Refunds Include Amounts Applicable To Trust Accounts Formerly Included In "Transfers To Trust Accounts", One Of The Items Deducted From Receipts To Derive "Net" Receipts. Refunds Applicable To Trust Accounts Have Here Been Eliminated And The Amounts Of Refunds Added Back Into Net Budget Receipts Are Comparable Throughout.

    Series Is Presented Here As Two Variables--(1)--Original Data, 1879-1953 (2)--Original Data, 1954-1959. Data Cover Internal Revenue Exclusive Of Income Tax. A New Classification Of Receipts Begins In July 1930 (See Daily Treasury Statement Of July 1, 1930). This Series Is Continued On The Old Basis Through June 1933. Thereafter, Receipts Are Those In General And Special Funds, Trust Fund Receipts Being Excluded. Earlier Data Covered Receipts In All Accounts. Miscellaneous Internal Revenue Is Almost Unaffected By This Change And The Discrepancies Between The Data Obtained From Annual Reports For 1932 And 1933, And Data Given In Daily Treasury Statements Respectively Are Insignificant. The Series Has Therefore Been Treated As Continuous. For July 1930-June 1931, The Daily Treasury Statement Shows Receipts Both On The Old And New Basis. In February 1954 The Accounting Procedures For Receipts And Expenditures Were Changed And Later Figures Are No Longer Comparable.
