June Income Tax Receipts Still Up
June income tax collections from Franchise Tax Board are running more than $300 million over projections through June 22.
The board reports receiving nearly $4 billion in income tax payments and $187 million in refund requests.
Gov. Jerry Brown’s revised budget, unveiled in May, expected $3.75 billion to be collected by the board in June, less $291 million in refunds.
June has become the second largest revenue collection month for the state – almost as big as April.
That’s because the September estimated tax payment was eliminated in 2009 and the second quarter – payable June 15 – was bumped up from 30 percent to 40 percent of what’s expected to be owed for taxes next April.
Overall, Brown’s budget expects a total of $6.9 billion in income tax payments this June, less the $291 million in refunds.
Of the net $6.6 billion, $3.1 billion is the money employers withhold from employee paychecks. That’s sent to the Employment Development Department.
The remaining $3.5 billion is collected by the tax board.
June is also a big month for bank and corporations collections.
Through June 22, corporate tax collections are running slightly ahead of estimates.
The governor’s Department of Finance expects $2 billion in corporate taxes less $67 million in refunds for a net of roughly $1.9 billion.
So far, more than $2 billion in taxes have been paid and $47 million in refund requests filed.
