The total of his fines in New York for offences including spitting and swearing was $32,500.
Kyrgios competed in singles and men’s doubles at Flushing Meadows.
He won a combined total of $473,200 in prize money at the Grand Slam.
Having reached his first major final at Wimbledon this year, Kyrgios has been playing with renewed intensity.
He was one of the favourites for the singles title, especially after he eliminated defending champion Daniil Medvedev and Rafael Nadal went down to Frances Tiafoe in the fourth round.
But Kyrgios lost 7-5 4-6 7-5 6-7 (3) 6-4 to Russian 27th seed Khachanov on Tuesday night.
