Minnesotans paid less in taxes this February than state officials were expecting, a new revenue statement shows.
The state general fund took in $1.06 billion in tax revenue for the month, about $26 million less than projected. Income tax withholding was $566 million, about $36 million below forecast.
That was partially offset by strong sales tax collections, which came in at $370 million, about $13.2 million more than projected.
State budget officials warn against reading much into monthly variances. Slight variations in when taxes are processed can create wild swings in monthly tax revenue.
