Gov. Nathan Deal has announced Georgia collected $1.41 billion in net tax revenue last month. The figure represents a 6.7 percent increase compared with July 2012. In a statement, Deal said Monday that the percentage increase translates to about $88.5 million in additional tax revenue compared with July 2012.
Georgia state revenues were up just over 1 percent in March compared with the same month a year ago. That makes for a 5.2 percent increase for fiscal 2013 over the first three quarters of the previous fiscal year.
