State FY16 Tax Update

On September 25, 2016 usgovernmentspending.com updated FY2016 state revenue with quarterly tax data released by the US Census Bureau on September 20, 2016.  Local tax data was updated by assuming that local taxes for 2016 changed by the same percent as state taxes of the same type.

State and local spending projections for FY2017 to FY2021 have been reestimated using the "Guesstimate" method.
