The Federal government fiscal year runs from October 1 through September 30 of the next year. Most states do not follow the Federal fiscal year. In fact, only Alabama and Michigan have the same fiscal year schedule as the Federal Government. Along with different fiscal year schedules, several states have enacted a biennial budget. Knowing your state’s fiscal year is key to planning and pursuing state contract opportunities.

Here is the breakdown of the fiscal year by state and when it ends:
