April 2013 California Personal Income Tax Daily Revenue Tracker

Personal Income Tax Revenues for the Month of April 2013

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 show the State collected a net total of $12,473,998,000 in personal income taxes in April, bringing fiscal year-to-date personal income tax revenues as of April 30 to $55.778 billion.

The Governor's budget estimated a total of $12.746 billion in income taxes would be collected in April, bringing projected fiscal year-to-date personal income tax revenues as of April 30 to $51.414 billion.

Last year, personal income taxes accounted for 60.74 percent of all State General Fund revenues. Of those receipts, 14.14 percent arrived during the month of April.

*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.
