State tax take drops in March

Posted By on Thu, Apr 2, 2015 at 10:15 AM

The state revenue report for March doesn't paint a rosy picture for those anticipating robust growth to pay for tax cuts and the like.

From the state summary:

March Net Available General Revenues total $365.2 million, $21.3 million or -5.5
percent below last year and $13.2 million or -3.5 percent below forecast.

Results in March were below forecast as a result of declines in Sales Tax and Individual
Income. Corporate Income tax was 13.9 percent above forecast. 

For the first nine months of the year, the state gross collections are 1.3 percent above the same period last  year.

  • 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.
