"An 8.3 percent growth rate in Tennessee’s monthly sales tax collections marks the state’s highest rate since January 2006. The state Finance Department said in a release Monday that the state collected $555 million in sales taxes in September, which reflects economic activity in the previous month. That’s nearly $13 million more than projected. But corporate franchise and excise taxes fell $16 million below the budget estimate, holding the month’s total general fund collections to just $4.5 million above projections." [editor's note: One must remind those who may not know; this is about more "consumption fees" being collected, not income taxes rising (of which Tenn. has none, thanks to local libertarians, among others) - SAT] [additional editor's note: Consumption of what? -TLK] (10/11/11)
