Florida collected about $3.311 billion in general-revenue taxes in July, $225.9 million more than had been forecast in March, according to a report posted online Tuesday by the Legislature’s Office of Economic & Demographic Research.
The report came after state economists in August issued a new forecast that updated the March estimates.
The August update added $2.77 billion to the state’s general-revenue tax projections for the current fiscal year and next fiscal year.
