Idaho's latest financial report card includes some positive, but modest, news.
The Idaho Division of Financial Management said General Fund collections for September were $100,000 above forecast. Individual and corporate income tax receipts along with product taxes all surpassed expectations, but sales tax revenues were below forecast. The fiscal year-to-date General Fund receipts are more than $9 million below forecast.
Sales tax income has yet to meet any of its monthly targets for Fiscal Year 2012, through September.
Overall General Fund collections have topped $229 million for FY 2012, year-to-date, a 9.5-percent improvement over last year but 14.6 percent lower than FY 2010.
