Analysts polled by Reuters had forecast a $43 billion deficit for last month. The deficit was $37 billion in March of 2014, according to Treasury's monthly budget statement.
The current fiscal year-to-date deficit stood at $439 billion at the end of last month.
Differences in the monthly calendar affected March's budget results. If adjusted for timing-related transactions, the budget deficit would have been $89 billion.
