State revises tax income estimates upward

Posted By on Wed, May 1, 2013 at 1:54 PM

The state Finance and Administration Department today issued revised forecasts for state tax revenue through the end of fiscal 2014 (June 30, 2014). The trend is upward, with increases in revenue forecast despite tax cuts taking effect in fiscal 2014.

A gain of 4.7 percent in net revenue is expected this year, which ends June 30, well beyond the 2.4 percent increase expected and the reason for a projected $137 million surplus.

In 2014, the net is expected to increase 1.9 percent, enough to cover spending priorities A-C in the state budget and leave an $18.9 million rain day fund and $13.8 million in surplus.

Here's the full report.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
