* - ATF took over collection of Firearms and Ammunition Excise Tax on 1/1/91. Before 1/1/91, the IRS collected the tax. Therefore, the figure shown for FY1991 is a combination of IRS and ATF figures. ATF does not collect the excise tax on bows and arrows. The IRS collects this tax and should be contacted for that information.
