States’ overall tax revenues rose in the first quarter of calendar 2010 on a year-over-year basis, marking the first such gain since the third quarter of 2008, according to preliminary data in this Institute report. Despite the overall growth in revenues, a majority of states still saw declines. Further, early indications of revenues in the April-June quarter are not promising.
