Independent Fiscal Office Releases Initial FY 2015-2016 Revenue Projections 5/13/2015
The state's Independent Fiscal Office (IFO) has released its initial revenue projections for FY 2015-2016, which the Office is required by statute to produce as an aid to the General Assembly’s budget deliberations. The IFO also released revised FY 2014-2015 revenue estimates, which are almost $600 million higher than the projection issued by the IFO at the beginning of the fiscal year, mostly due to unexpected revenue from the corporate net income tax and unclaimed property. For FY 2015-2016, revenues are projected to be $30.72 billion, a 0.6 percent increase. Relative to the Executive Budget presented in February, these projections are $374 million higher for FY 2014-2015 and $97 million higher for FY 2015-2016. These amounts exclude proposed statutory changes.
