Monthly state tax collections provides data for following sales taxes; general sales, lodging, alcoholic beverages, motor fuel, tobacco products as well as individual income and corporate income taxes. Data reported for a specific month generally represent sales taxes collected on sales made during the prior month.
Tax collections primarily rely on unaudited data collected from existing state reports or state data sources available from and posted on the Internet. Secondarily, states report the data via the Quarterly Survey of State and Local Tax Revenue. Data are updated monthly, but due to differing reporting cycles data for some states may lag.
