In the first nine days of October, while the federal government was in what is commonly being called a shutdown, federal tax collections went up.

Last year, from Oct. 1 through Oct. 9, 2012, according to the Daily Treasury Statement, the federal government collected $55.235 billion in total tax revenues. This year, from Oct. 1 through Oct. 9, 2013, according to the Daily Treasury Statement, the federal government collected $56.188 billion in total tax revenues.

During nine days of a shutdown this year, the federal government collected $953 million more in taxes than it did in the same nine calendar days last year–when it was open for business.

Clearly, being shutdown does not mean the government is shut out of the taxpayers’ pocketbook.
