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.

The Department of Revenue's Office of Tax Research has released all FY 2019-20 revenue estimates. Please note that these estimates are subject to future revision, if errors are discovered. Consequently, local officials should review this webpage periodically in the coming days. County or municipal officials having questions about their respective jurisdiction's Communications Services Tax estimates should contact Matthew Moore with the Department's Office of Tax Research at 850-717-7127. Questions about all other revenue estimates should be directed to Bob McKee at 850-717-6159. The 2019 Local Government Financial Information Handbook will be updated and published later this year, probably during the month of November.

Local officials interested in revenue estimates for a prior fiscal year should consult the relevant annual edition of the Local Government Financial Information Handbook.
