October 2nd, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Gov. Jim Justice announced Friday that West Virginia’s General Revenue collections for September 2021 came in at $84.6 million above estimates. “We’re almost numb to good news about our revenue numbers now, but a whopping surplus like this ought to be the number one thing that we think about,” Gov. Justice said. “It really takes a lot of good work by lots of people, pitching a near-perfect game, and I couldn’t be more proud.”  September collections of $504.5 million were 19.1% ahead of prior year receipts. 
Year-to-date collections of $1.19 billion are $142.7 million above estimates. The end of September marked the conclusion of Q1 for FY2022.
