The Minnesota Department of Revenue took in $1.6 billion for the month, about 3.6 percent higher than estimated.

Income tax collections came in at $718 million, about $30.3 million more than budget officials estimated.

Sales tax collections were $455 million, beating targets by 4.4 million.

The state took in $63.9 million in corporate income taxes, up $1 million over estimates.
