How Does the Federal Gov't Use Our Taxes????


FiscalData.Treasury.Gov answers that question!  It's a deep dive into the Treasury Department's weeds.


Some of the FiscalData.Treasury.Gov's datasets include:

  • Daily Treasury Statement (DTS), which provides data on the daily cash and debt operations of the US Treasury, including cash balance, deposits, and withdrawals; tax deposits and refunds; and debt transactions.
  • Historical Qualified Tax Credit Bond Interest Rates
  • US Government Revenue Collections
    • And so, so, so, many more spreadsheets.



A broader open data source of government spending than FiscalData.Treasury.Gov.  It has lots of interesting stuff about COVID-19 spending information, which is pretty neat.
