State tax revenue picks up in October

Posted By on Wed, Nov 2, 2016 at 9:48 AM

The state's tax revenue picked up in October, but collections remain behind the forecast for the first four months of the year. Gross collections were $530 million, or 8.1 percent more than the same month last year and 3.8 percent, or $19.3 million, above the forecast on which the current budget was set.

Most of the increase came in a jump in corporate tax collections, a figure that fluctuates through the year. The month's sales tax take, a more reliable measure of economic activity, was below forecast.

Through the first four months of the year, revenue remains behind forecast. The state has pulled in $2.05 billion, 1.9 percent more than last year, but .8 percent, or $16.8 million, below the budget forecast. The net available after mandatory set-asides for certain agencies, is $23 million behind forecast.

    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.
