Year-to-date revenue collections totaled $3.95 billion, $437 million or 12.4 percent above last year.

"Income and sales tax revenues continued to be very strong in September reflecting a continuing strong economy in Massachusetts," said Laskey.

Corporate collections totaled $213.6 million, down $11 million or 4.7 percent though this decline was due to a comparison with unusually strong collections in September 1999.
