Businesses, Homeowners, and Diners Sustain Robust Revenue Flow

November 6, 2015 Data Viz

With four months on the books, the state’s revenue picture is becoming clearer and the situation continues to be encouraging. According to the most recent Department of Administrative Services’ Monthly Revenue Focus, FY 2016 total General and Education Fund revenue is exceeding expectations, as outlined by the Department’s Revenue Plan, by nearly $20 million through October. While the state has over a dozen streams of revenue, three – business taxes, the meals and rooms tax, and the real estate transfer tax – are doing the heavy lifting.

Given that New Hampshire’s General and Education Funds have received only about one-quarter of what they will eventually collect for the current fiscal year, it is still too early to expect these trends will hold through next summer. Nevertheless, collections during the last four months suggest that New Hampshire is on track for a strong year, especially since the economic outlook is likely to remain stable, if not somewhat improve.

The following data visualization is designed to help you understand these data. Within each tab, you can hover over each data point to view additional context. On the right side are seven radio buttons, which allow you to further investigate revenue trends by specific tax type or by total collections.

24 Jun 2019

Negotiators from the House and Senate agreed to a final budget proposal in the Committee of Conference for House Bill 1 and House Bill 2 last week, preserving many Senate proposals while incorporating additional education aid and removing the paid family and medical leave proposal supported by both the House and the Senate in their respective versions of the State Budget. The Committee of Conference budget proposal does not include the expansion of the Interest and Dividends Tax to include capital gains as proposed by the House, but freezes business tax rates at 2018 levels. The proposal retains the Senate’s $17.5 million appropriation for a new secure psychiatric facility and $40 million in revenue sharing to municipal governments during the biennium.
