Va. Revenues Higher Than Projected

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Virginia's state revenues are higher than previously projected with March collections up nearly 12 percent higher than a year ago.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe's office released figures Monday showing that total revenue collections are up 7.1 percent so far this fiscal year. That's more than 2 percentage points higher than the growth projected in a budget lawmakers approved in the 2015 legislative session.

McAuliffe said the strong revenues are a sign that Virginia's economy is improving.

The state's Department of Taxation also issued 1.8 percent fewer refunds in March of 2015 compared to a year ago.
