DECEMBER REVENUE FIGURES INDICATE MIXED RESULTS

Written by Matt Davis on January 16, 2012. Posted in News/Weather

Governor Nathan Deal released Georgia’s revenue figures for December 2011 late last week.  The revenue performance for last month was mixed as compared to December 2010.  Sales tax collections continued to grow with net revenue increasing by 7.5 percent, marking the 18th month of positive growth in sales tax revenues out of the last 19 months.  In contrast, individual income tax and corporate income tax revenues fell compared to December 2010.  However, December 2010 revenues for both taxes were considerably high due to large audit settlement payments received in December 2010.  These payments result from settlement of disputes between the taxpayers and the Department of Revenue and usually represent taxes owed over a multi-year period along with any penalties and interest.
