The Department of the Treasury was established in 1789. These annual reports also contain the reports of the many departments of the Treasury, including the Bureau of the Mint, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Bureau of Customs, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Secret Service, and the Internal Revenue Service.
This annual report ceased publication after the 1980 annual report. Data found in the annual report is available for recent years in performance and accountability reports of the Treasury, the Treasury Bulletin, the annual report of the Bureau of Financial Management Service, and in annual reports of other bureaus of the Treasury.
Statistical Appendices for the years 1968-1980 are included.
Most of the reports for the years 1790-1844 were bound together into four volumes with combined indexes at the end of each volume. The index for the volume and table of contents listing the reports contained in that volume are included in the pdfs for the applicable years. Additionally, reports for the years 1789, 1792-1794, and 1796-1800 were downloaded from the American State Papers, digitized by the Library of Congress.
In the report for 1842, there is a notation that an act to establish a fiscal year for the United States was approved on August 26, 1842.
