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.
