Chinese literature on American nontax revenue tends to take the user charges from federal government as federal nontax revenue or even as the U.S. nontax revenue, and obtain an American percentage of nontax in total financial revenue from computing the ratio of their “nontax revenue” to the federal receipts, which is a mistake. This paper aims to prove that the U.S. government doesn’t have a budget category which can be regarded as nontax revenue, so the definition or composition of the “nontax revenue” should be given before researching. Furthermore, this paper puts forward that the proportion of “nontax” to “total” revenue of the federal government is about 25% to 30% in recent years under a certain definition.
