  2. Charlie says:

    $74.3 Million x 12 = $891.6 Million

    The Fiscal Note on the bill set the impact between $868M and $873M.

    I’d say that HB 170 is working as intended. If this number is annualized, there’s less than a 3% differential from that range.

    “Year-to-date, net tax revenue collections totaled almost $5.13 billion, for an increase of nearly $438.7 million, or 9.4 percent, compared to last year, when net tax revenues totaled $4.69 billion.

    House Bill 170, which introduced an array of tax reforms and new tax legislation beginning on July 1, generated transportation revenue of $74.3 million in September. As a result, the total revenue for September 2015 increased 8.7 percent over September 2014.”
