April 2012 California Personal Income Tax Daily Revenue Tracker

Personal Income Tax Revenues for the Month of April 2012

Because personal income taxes are a major source of revenue to the State, and because April is a big month for tax receipts, State Controller John Chiang provided a daily tally of personal income taxes for the month.

Preliminary reports from April 1-30 show the State collected a net total of $7.171 billion in personal income taxes. The Governor's latest budget estimate projected income taxes would total $9.132 billion for the month.

Last year, personal income taxes accounted for 54.06 percent of all State General Fund revenues. Of those receipts, 14.11 percent arrived during the month of April.

This chart provides year-to-date figures for April 2012 that reflect the amount of personal income taxes received, minus refunds paid. For comparison, the chart also includes income tax receipts from April 2011.

*The table above shows the most recent personal income tax revenues, which include payroll withholdings, taxes received and refunds paid out. The reconciliation of these numbers can take up to two days. Final April revenues may not be known until the first week of May due to delivery and processing requirements and the large volume of tax filings received.

**A negative figure indicates that the daily refund total outpaced daily receipts and withholdings.
