The U.S. government posted a $108 billion budget deficit in March, more than double the amount from the same period last year, the Treasury Department said.


The government had a deficit of $53 billion in March of 2015, according to the Treasury's monthly budget statement. Accounting for calendar adjustments, March would have shown a $102 billion deficit compared with an adjusted $89 billion deficit in March 2015.

The current fiscal year-to-date deficit was $461 billion, up 5 percent from a $439 billion deficit this time last year.

Receipts last month totaled $228 billion, while outlays stood at $336 billion.
