May 24, 1985|Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The government enjoyed a rare monthly budget surplus last month, courtesy of a surge of money from tax returns, the Treasury Department reported Thursday.

The April surplus of $12.37 billion still left the total deficit for the fiscal year at $115.74 billion, 9% ahead of the level at this time last year.

The Reagan Administration is forecasting a record deficit of $203 billion for the current fiscal year, 16% higher than last year's $175.34 billion.
