adj. 1. Relating to money, especially the money of a government or business.
Tax season tends to get people thinking about fiscal matters.
It comes from Latin fiscus, a purse or basket where money was kept, eventually referring more generally to the state treasury. Often heard in the phrases “fiscal year,” marking the calendar dates when finance records begin and end, and “fiscal responsibility,” something politicians often claim to stand for.
“With great fiscal power comes great fiscal responsibility.”
