The report says the state collected $15.1 billion in general purpose revenue taxes, which include individual and corporate income taxes, sales tax, and excise taxes. That’s up 3.8 percent from the previous year.

Expenditures total $15.3 billion, $103 million less than the $15.4 billion allocated for spending in the state budget.
