Reserve Banks 2016 income and expense data
The Federal Reserve Board has released preliminary results indicating that the Reserve Banks provided for payments of approximately $92.0 billion of their estimated 2016 net income to the U.S. Treasury. The 2016 audited Reserve Bank financial statements are expected to be published in March and may include adjustments to these preliminary unaudited results. The Federal Reserve Banks' 2016 estimated net income of $92.7 billion represents a decrease of $7.6 billion from 2015, primarily attributable to a decrease of $2.5 billion in interest income from changes as a result of the composition of securities held in the Federal Reserve System Open Market Account and an increase of $5.2 billion in interest expense associated with reserve balances held by depository institutions. In addition, the Reserve Banks were assessed $700.7 million for the costs related to producing, issuing, and retiring currency, $709.0 million for Board expenditures, and $596.2 million to fund the operations of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
