Factoid of the Day Monday, November 30, 2015
Data (preliminary) compiled by the Rockefeller Institute shows that total state tax collections grew by 6.8%, year-over-year, in Q2’15, according to its own release. Tax collections were higher, on a y-o-y basis, in 21 of the past 22 quarters. Over the past 22 quarters, the average quarterly gain in total tax collections was 5.3%. Personal income tax collections, up 14.2% in Q2’15, rose the most of any of the major tax categories. The only region of the U.S. that did not post y-o-y growth was the Southwest (-1.8%). The Far West, Mid-Atlantic and New England regions posted the highest growth rates in total tax collections at 11.2%, 8.5% and 8.0%, respectively.
