*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 the daily refund total outpaced daily receipts and withholdings.

***No transactions are posted on weekends.
