State says Ohio tax revenue up in April

May 13, 2019

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio’s budget office says tax revenue picked up considerably in April, putting year-to-date revenue figures 3% above estimates.

The data reported Thursday by the Ohio Office of Budget and Management shows $1.33 billion in personal income tax collections in April, beating projections for that month by $377 million.

The positive revenue news means Senate lawmakers will have a cushion to work with as they begin debate on the two-year state budget following House passage on Thursday.
