Answer

There was a surplus in the year: 2000. There were deficits in the years: 1995, 2005, 2012.

Work Step by Step

To find a surplus, we look for years during which Receipts were greater than Outlays in the table. The only such year is 2000. Thus there was a surplus in the year 2000. All the other years were thus deficits (Outlays greater than Receipts): 1995, 2005, 2012.
