LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A
new report says Nebraska's tax collections are roughly on pace with
estimates for the current fiscal year.
The tax commissioner's
office announced Tuesday that the state has received about $573 million
since the new fiscal year began on July 1. That's less than 1 percent
above the certified forecast of $569 million.
Doug Ewald says net receipts for the month of August totaled $341
million, which is less than the forecast of $344 million.
comparisons are based on an April forecast made by the Nebraska Economic
Forecasting Advisory Board. The board's projections were adjusted for
new laws that passed in 2013 and divided into monthly estimates.
