Indiana revenues grew last month compared to a year ago and came in higher than projected in December.

According to a report by the Indiana State Budget Agency, the state took in $977.2 million in March, up $69 million, or 8 percent, from the same month a year ago and $32 million more than the forecast.

Individual income taxes had the highest percentage growth over a year ago, bringing in $334 million, nearly 17 percent more than in March 2010.

Sales taxes remained the state's greatest revenue source, bringing in $484 million, about $24 million more, or 5.1 percent higher, than a year ago.

Indiana Budget Director Adam Horst said sales tax collections have increased year-over-year for 13 consecutive months.

    Now that the State is making more money, how about a cut of Sales Tax at the pump? Anyone? Anyone? Just Crickets. No one is listening.
