General Fund and Road Fund receipts for December 2022
From John Hicks/Greg Harkenride
Frankfort, KY - State Budget Director John Hicks reported on Tuesday, January 10, 2023, that General Fund receipts rose 3.3 percent in December compared to last year. Total revenues for the month were $1,435.7 million. Receipts have now risen 5.8 percent for the first half of the fiscal year. When adjusting for the one-time legal settlement received in September of FY22, General Fund receipts have risen 9.2 percent through the first six months of FY23.
The state's revenue forecasting entity, the Consensus Forecasting Group, increased the official General Fund estimates by $1,442.9 million in FY23 and $1,314.8 million in FY24. Revenue growth needed in the final six months of FY23 to hit the revised FY23 official estimate is 1.2 percent.
Road Fund receipts for November totaled $136.7 million, a 9.0 percent increase from December 2021 levels. Year-to-date Road Fund receipts have increased 3.4 percent. Based on collections through the first six months, Road Fund receipts must grow 2.1 percent over the balance of the fiscal year to meet the official FY23 estimate of $1,721.0 million.
Hicks noted that revenue receipts remain very positive in December, posting the fourth highest monthly total ever recorded in the General Fund. "We have seen strong sales tax growth for nearly two years, and individual income withholding receipts continue to rise. Sales tax receipts in December were $461.7 million, the fifth highest monthly total. General Fund revenue growth in the past two Decembers was 16.1 percent in FY21 and 10.4 percent in FY22, so the revenue generated from 3.3 percent total revenue growth was formidable due to the high prior-year levels of revenue. As we transition to the second half of the fiscal year, revenues will start to be affected by the many tax law changes from the 2022 Legislative Session that become effective in January 2023, particularly the 10 percent reduction in the individual income tax, and applying the sales tax to 35 additional services.
