Dept. of Revenue Releases December Figures

moneyThe Keystone State brought in almost $3 billion over the last month of 2015, even as officials continue to struggle on a spending plan.

In the first six months of the 2015-16 fiscal year, the state collected $13.4 billion in taxes, Secretary of Revenue Eileen McNulty said.

The state’s personal income taxes generated $1.1 billion in December, while the 6% sales tax raised almost $825 million.

PA corporations paid $528.6 million last month – $466.4 million more than they paid in November. $178 million were added to the Motor License Fund through gas and diesel taxes last month, with $1.3 billion collected for the fund since the fiscal year started on July 1.

Taxes on cigarettes, malt beverages and liquor, and table games generated almost $160 million, McNulty reported, up 50% from November.
