County and Municipal Revenue Estimates

Two sets of data are required by the Department of Revenue's Office of Tax Research to calculate annual county and municipal revenue estimates. First, the most recent annual population estimates, which have been adjusted for annexations and incorporations, are needed from EDR to begin the process. Second, the official Measures Affecting Revenue adopted by the Revenue Estimating Conference at the conclusion of each Legislative Session is required prior to completing the estimates. The Measures embody the fiscal impacts to state and local revenues resulting from enacted legislation during the most recent legislative session. Historically, the release of adjusted population estimates has occurred during early to mid-June, the Measures are completed no later than the end of June, and the subsequent release of local government revenue estimates by the Department has occurred within the late June to mid-July timeframe.

Local officials interested in FY 2019-20 revenue estimates published in the 2019 Local Government Financial Information Handbook or revenue estimates for a prior fiscal year should consult the relevant annual edition of the Local Government Financial Information Handbook.

COVID-19 Update:

At this time, it is too early to say how Florida's tax revenues will be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic due to the time lag between local economic activity and the availability of statewide tax collections data. Consequently, the Revenue Estimating Conference has made no decision regarding revisions, if any, to FY 2019-20 county and municipal revenue estimates. If future revisions to FY 2019-20 revenue estimates are made, those updates will be posted here. Under normal circumstances, the release of FY 2020-21 estimates would be expected during the June-July 2020 timeframe; however, it is possible that the release of those estimates may be delayed. As any new FY 2020-21 or revised FY 2019-20 local revenue estimates are released, EDR staff will post them here. Local government officials can view and download the Department of Revenue - Office of Tax Research's monthly tax collections and distributions data by county, which may provide an indication of how state and local tax collections and distributions are trending locally.
