State revenues finish quarter up 2.6%

Posted online
Missouri tax collections are on an upswing two months in a row.

A 9.1 percent increase in net general revenue collections during September comes on the heels of a 0.8 percent rise in August collections. The state collected $707.7 million in September, up from the $648.7 million collected the same month a year ago, State Budget Director Linda Luebbering said in a news release.

Fiscal 2011 net general revenue collections are up 2.6 percent to $1.75 billion year-to-date, compared to the first three months of fiscal 2010.

Additionally, collections are slightly above the administration's fiscal-year projections.

The governor's budget passed this spring predicted a 2.3 percent increase in tax collections during the first quarter of fiscal 2011. As of the end of September, the state has netted a 2.6 percent increase in revenue collections for the past three months.

  • Individual income tax collections increased 1.5 percent during the quarter to $1.22 billion this year. The September increase was 1.1 percent.
