Revenue Commissioner Alan LeBovidge today announced revenue collections for February totaled $848 million.

Year-to-date revenue collections totaled $10.355 billion, an increase of $571 million or 5.8 percent over last year. Year-to-date revenues are now $138 million above the revised fiscal 2005 benchmark.

Collections for February decreased $55 million or 6.0 percent less than last February. Receipts for February were $19 million below the adjusted benchmark.

"February is a small month for collections," LeBovidge said. "Withholding collections were affected by the difference in a due date that reduced the spillover of revenue from January."

Withholding tax collections totaled $620 million, a decrease of $87 million or 12.3 percent. Sales and use tax collections were $276 million, up $8 million or 2.9 percent.
