Public Savings Calculator


What is public savings?

Public savings is the amount of excess revenue that the government brings in over their expenses.

If the result is positive, it means that tax revenue is higher than the amount they spend.

If the result is negative, it means that tax revenue is lower than the amount that is spent.


Public Savings = Tax – Government Spending


In a country, tax is $500,000 and government spending is $300,000.

Public Savings = $500,000 – $300,000 = $200,000

Therefore, public savings is $200,000.
