Indiana collected $159 million more in revenue in April than expected.
Total revenue collections last month represent an increase of more than 25% versus the same month a year ago.
Governor Daniels says a major reason for that dramatic increase is greater efficiency within the Department of Revenue. The department processed significantly more tax returns last month than it ever had before, which led in part to the higher-than-expected revenue.
Daniels says, as a result, May’s figures might be a little lower than forecast, but he’s pleased.
