Sales Tax is also performing well. The Proposed Budget assumes a 5% growth in
these revenues. This assumption is on the lower end of sales tax projections from a variety of sources. Business Tax has shown unexpectedly strong performance. The CAO’s revised current year estimate is 3% above the Adopted Budget. This revenue source is projected to grow by 4% in the 2011-12 fiscal year.
” Accordingly, the CAO’s projected General Fund deficit of $336.3 million is the correct deficit from which to work. It is imperative that the City remain consistent and transparent in providing information to the bond rating agencies and investors with regard to our financial condition and it is important to note that the City’s deficit has been reduced, not increased, from information previously provided to the financial community.”Gerry F. Miller, Chief Legislative Analyst
