Tennessee Sales Tax Collection Update


Revenue collections are looking good for Tennessee, according to the revenue report from the Tennessee Finance and Administration Department. Commissioner Mark Emkes reports that "...collections for October were $791.5 million, which is 8.01% above October 2010."

October signals the end of the first quarter of the 2011-2012 fiscal year and "the sales tax recorded a first quarter growth of 6.5%, which is the best first quarter growth since 2006," according to Emkes.

Collections were $15.9 million more than the original estimate for October, and $36.4 million more than the budgeted estimate. According to the state, "...sales tax and franchise and excise tax collections account for about seventy-five percent of all state tax revenue."
