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 (REC) 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 government 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.

August 25th Update:

Local 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.

In late July, FY 2020-21 county and municipal revenue estimates were released by the Department of Revenue's Office of Tax Research and posted below. These initial estimates were produced using the official results of the January 15, 2020 General Revenue Estimating Conference and the July 17, 2020 Florida Economic Estimating Conference. These initial estimates were based on the best information available at that time, and local government officials were advised to be very cautious and conservative in their budgeting for FY 2020-21 due to the uncertain effects of the global pandemic on state and local revenues.

New official state revenue estimates were adopted at the August 14, 2020 General Revenue Estimating Conference, and the Office of Tax Research has updated county and municipal revenue estimates to reflect the new official state figures. However, the initial Communications Services Tax (CST) and Taxable Sales Reported by Transient Rental Facilities estimates, both published in late July, will not be updated.

County and municipal government officials having questions about their respective government's FY 2020-21 revenue estimates should contact the appropriate Office of Tax Research staff economist at 850-617-8322 or at the email address listed below.
