Administration and Finance Department of Revenue24 FY2010 Update In early October, DOR announced a $212 million shortfall in tax revenues for the first quarter of FY10.; Following consultation with the state Department of Revenue and his Economic Advisory Council, Governor Patrick reduced revenue projections for the entire fiscal year by $600 million. Consistent with prior recessions, growth in the main drivers of state tax revenues – employment, wages, taxable sales, and corporate profits– is expected to lag the economic recovery. This is because even as the economy grows, businesses remain cautious and do not resume hiring until they are certain that the economic expansion is sustainable. And until hiring picks up, wages (and the taxes paid through withholding on wages) will not grow and consumers will not increase their spending on taxable goods. While the stock market has staged a strong recovery over the past six months, capital gains realizations are still projected to decline in tax year 2009, which will be reflected in FY10 capital gains taxes. According to an October 2009 report from the Center for Budget Policy and Priorities, revenues have fallen short of projections and resulted in mid-year budget deficits in 26 states, totaling $16 billion or 4% of these budgets.
Administration and Finance Department of Revenue25 FY2010 Update FY10 Challenge and Solutions To Date In the fall of 2009, A&F completed a detailed review of all fiscal year 2010 spending and revenue assumptions. Throughout the first half of the fiscal year there were several changes that have had an impact on the bottom line of the budget.
Administration and Finance Department of Revenue26 FY2010 Update Continuation of Fiscal Management Processes FTE caps continue to be used FY10 additions carefully reviewed in an effort to evaluate their impacts on FY11 and in most cases denied. Contractor hires will continue to be evaluated as to continue to meet our legal obligations around the use of contractors versus FTEs.
