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 early July timeframe.

FY 2016-17 Revenue Estimates: The adjusted 2015 population estimates, which were needed to calculate the 2016-17 revenue estimates, were posted in June 2016. Additionally, all FY 2016-17 revenue estimates (i.e., the Communications Services Tax, Constitutional Fuel Tax, County Fuel Tax, County Revenue Sharing Program, Local Discretionary Sales Surtax, Local Government Half-cent Sales Tax Program, Local Option Fuel Taxes, Municipal Revenue Sharing Program, Ninth-cent Fuel Tax, and Taxable Sales Reported by Transient Rental Facilities), which were calculated by the Department's Office of Tax Research, were posted in June-July 2016. The 2016 local option fuel, sales, and tourist tax tables were posted within this timeframe as well. These revenue estimates and tax rate tables were subsequently published in EDR's 2016 Local Government Financial Information Handbook.

FY 2017-18 Revenue Estimates: The 2017 local option fuel, sales, and tourist tax tables were recently updated. The adjusted 2016 population estimates, which will be needed to calculate the 2017-18 revenue estimates, should be available by early to mid-June 2017. By late June-late July 2017, the Department's Office of Tax Research should be finalizing the 2017-18 revenue estimates. Once finalized and forwarded to our office, EDR will post the 2017-18 revenue estimates to this webpage.
