Term fiscal Definition: Relating to government taxation, spending, or financial matters. The term is most often using in combination with other words, such as fiscal budget, fiscal year, or fiscal policy. In each case, the addition of the term "fiscal" means a connection with government financial matters. Fiscal policy, for example, is policy that makes use of government spending and taxation. Fiscal year is then the standard 12-month period government uses for collecting taxes, appropriating spending, and otherwise tabulating its budget.
