August Revenues Exceed Expectations: Revenue to the state's General and School Aid funds totaled $1.9 billion in August 2016, the Senate Fiscal Agency's monthly revenue report showed, representing a 5.9% increase from last August and exceeding expectations by $51.5 million. Above-estimate collections came in part from the individual income tax withholding payments and the State Education Tax, which more than offset below-forecast revenue from the Michigan Business Tax and greater-than-expected individual income tax refunds, the SFA report concluded. Collections earmarked to the General Fund were $33.9 million above expectations, and SAF collections were $20.8 million above forecasts. Year-to-date GF collections are $34.3 million below May estimates, though, while SAF collections are 437.2 million above expectations.
