CAPITAL ACCOUNT DEFICIT: An imbalance in a nation's balance of payments capital account in which payments made by the country for purchasing foreign assets exceed payments received by the country for selling domestic assets. In other words, investment by the domestic economy in foreign assets is less than foreign investment in domestic assets. This is generally not a desireable situation for a domestic economy. However, in the wacky world of international economics, a capital account deficit is often balanced by a current account surplus, which is generally considered a desireable situation. If, however, the current account does not balance out the capital account, then a capital account deficit contributes to a balance of payments deficit.

PERSONAL TAXES:

The common term for the portion of personal income used to pay personal tax and nontax payments. Personal tax and nontax payments is the official item in the National Income and Product Accounts maintained by the Bureau of Economics Analysis measuring the personal income taxes paid to the government sector on personal income received by the household sector. Personal tax and nontax payments are subtracted from personal income (PI) to calculate disposable income (DI). Personal tax and nontax payments are about 15 percent of personal income and about 13 percent of gross domestic product.
The primary taxes included in personal tax and nontax payments are the personal income taxes (the ones due on April 15th) that are paid to the three levels of government--federal, state, and local. Another major component is property taxes paid to state and local governments. It also includes assorted, and minor, nontax fees and charges, such as fishing licenses and national park entrance fees.

Taxes excluded from this item might be as important as those included. Personal tax and nontax payments do NOT include Social Security taxes or sales taxes. Both of these enter into the National Income and Product Accounts in other places.

The derivation of disposable income (DI) from personal income (PI) by subtracting personal tax and nontax payments (PT) is illustrated by this equation:

DI=PI - PT
