ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal says the state's tax revenue through the month of June totaled $17 billion, up 5.9 percent -- or nearly $951 million -- from the same point in 2012.
Deal said Monday that Georgia's increase in net tax revenue could be attributed to growth in several categories.
Deal says the state collected about $791.5 million in individual income taxes in June, a $10.5 million increase from June of 2012.
The state also collected $156.75 million in corporate income taxes, which is up by $2.75 million from June of 2012.
Deal says the state collected $87 million in motor vehicle fees, which is $58 million higher than last year. The increase is attributed to the newly-established tax that replaced the state's auto sales tax on new car purchases.
