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.

FY 2018-19 Revenue Estimates: As stated above, 2018-19 revenue estimates should be released between late June and mid-July. Local officials having questions about revenue estimates should contact the relevant research economist at the Department of Revenue's Office of Tax Research: Communications Services Tax - contact Matthew Moore at 850-717-7127; Constitutional, County, Local Option, and Ninth-Cent Fuel Taxes - contact T.C. Parker at 850-717-7167; County Revenue Sharing Program, Local Discretionary Sales Surtaxes, Local Government Half-cent Sales Tax Program, Municipal Revenue Sharing Program, and Taxable Sales Reported by Transient Rental Facilities - contact Bob McKee at 850-617-8322.

Future revisions to initial revenue estimates are possible, if errors are discovered. Therefore, local government officials are advised to re-check this page periodically. If any revisions are posted, a description of the affected local entities will be provided.

FY 2017-18 Revenue Estimates: All 2017-18 revenue estimates are published in the EDR publication: 2017 Local Government Financial Information Handbook.
