Abstract:

Tax collections for states across the country rose by 2.2 percent in April-June, the second consecutive quarterly increase, according to preliminary data. Sales tax revenues were particularly strong, rising 5.9 percent compared to a year earlier. Yet revenues remain sharply below pre-recession levels.
