September 2017 CBO Monthly Budget Review: Fiscal Year Ends With Deficit $80 Billion Greater Than Fiscal Year 2016

This is source I found from another site, main source you can find in last paragraph

In fiscal year 2016, which ended on September 30, the federal budget deficit totaled $587 billion- $148 billion more than the shortfall recorded in 2015. Measured as a share of the nation's gross domestic product (GDP), the deficit increased to 3.2 percent in 2016, up from 2.5 percent in 2015. About $41 billion of that increase resulted from a shift in the timing of some payments that the government ordinarily would have made in fiscal year 2017; those payments were made instead in fiscal year 2016 because October 1, 2016 (the first day of fiscal year 2017), fell on a weekend. If not for that shift, the deficit in 2016 would have been about $546 billion, or 3.0 percent of GDP-still considerably higher than the deficit recorded for 2015.

In 2016, the government's revenues amounted to $3.3 trillion-$18 billion (or less than 1 percent) greater than receipts recorded in 2015. As a percentage of GDP, revenues fell from 18.1 percent in 2015 to 17.8 percent in 2016; but, for the third year in a row, they remained higher than the average (17.4 percent) over the past 50 years. more
