Virginia October tax collections up 15.7 percent


SUFFOLK, Va. (AP) — Virginia general fund tax collections spiked by 15.7 percent for October over the same month the previous year. The figure reflects strong income tax collections but it's inflated by an anomaly of the calendar.

Two additional deposit days last month helped the state exceed its October 2011 individual income tax withholding total of nearly $811 million by $111 million.

The state's most broadly paid tax, deducted from paychecks, is significant because it accounts for nearly two-thirds of general revenues, which cover the costs of such basics as health care, public safety and education.

Largely because of it, year-to-date collections which had lagged well below its budgeted forecast for 2.9 percent growth after one quarter shot to 4.8 percent four months into the fiscal year.
