December revenues closed out the first half of State fiscal year 2018 with a sizable increase in the surplus, but the boost’s source suggests the result might be lower receipts in the next half of the year. Revenue sources for the General and Education Trust Funds collected $7.7 million (3.3 percent) more than planned in December, which was $14.4 million (6.4 percent) more than last December and resulted in a total unrestricted revenue surplus of $18.7 million (2.0 percent) above plan for the year. However, $7.3 million of the $7.7 million surplus from December came from a single source: the Interest and Dividends Tax.
