Vermont tax revenues below targets as recovery lags

first_imgSecretary of Administration Neale F Lunderville announced today that Vermont’s July revenue figures for the General Fund and Transportation Fund fell below targets, while the Education Fund exceeded its target.General FundSecretary of Administration Neale F Lunderville released the July 2010 General Fund Revenues today. July is the first month of fiscal year (FY) 2011. General Fund revenues totaled $82.22 million for July 2010, and were -$3.61 million or -4.21% below the $85.83 million consensus revenue forecast for the month. July is the first month of the fiscal year; therefore the monthly and year to date results are the same.The monthly targets reflect the revised Fiscal Year 2011 Consensus Revenue Forecast approved by the Emergency Board at their July 15, 2010 meeting. Statutorily, the State is required to revise the Consensus Revenue Forecast two times per year, in January and July. The Emergency Board may schedule interim revisions if deemed necessary.Personal Income Tax (PI) receipts are the largest single state revenue source, and are reported Net-of-Personal Income Tax refunds. Personal Income Tax receipts for July were recorded at $43.27 million, or -$1.99 million or -4.40% below the monthly target of $45.26 million.Corporate Income Taxes for July, which are also reported net-of-refunds, were recorded at -$0.81 million against a target of $1.62 million, or -$2.42 million (-149.86%) below the monthly target of $1.62 million, due to higher than expected corporate refund activity.The consumption taxes were above target for July; Sales & Use Tax receipts of $19.88 million were above target by +$0.19 million (+0.94%), while Rooms & Meals Tax receipts of $10.07 million were above target by +$0.11 million (+1.05%).The remaining tax components include Insurance, Inheritance & Estate Tax, Real Property Transfer Tax, and ‘Other’ (which includes: Bank Franchise Tax, Telephone Tax, Liquor Tax, Beverage Tax, Fees, and Other Taxes). The results for July were as follows: Insurance Tax, $0.28 million (-18.04%); Estate Tax, $0.90 million (-33.05%); Property Transfer Tax, $0.74 million (-11.11%); and ‘Other’, $7.87 million (+16.43%).Transportation FundSecretary Lunderville also reported on the non-dedicated Transportation Fund Revenue for July. Total non-dedicated Transportation Fund receipts of $15.57 million for July fell short of target by -$0.13 million (-0.80%), against the July target of $15.70 million.Individual revenue receipts components for July were: Gasoline Tax, $5.15 million or -1.12% short of target; Diesel Tax, $0.70 million or -10.91% below target; Motor Vehicle Purchase & Use Tax, $3.21 million or -3.19% below target; Motor Vehicle Fees, $5.52 million or +8.65% above target; and Other Fees, $1.00 million or -23.99% below the monthly target.Secretary Lunderville also reported on the July results for the Transportation Infrastructure Bond Fund (’TIB’). TIB Fund Gas receipts for July were $1.33 million or -5.00% short of target. TIB Fund Diesel receipts were $0.08 million or -10.97% short of target for July. TIB Fund receipts are noted below the following table:Education FundThe ‘non-Property Tax’ Education Fund revenues (which constitute 11.75% of the total Education Fund sources) were released today by Secretary Lunderville. The non-Property Tax Education Fund receipts for July totaled $12.55 million, or +$0.04 million (+0.32%) above the $12.51 million target for July.The individual Education Fund revenue component results for July were: Sales & Use Tax, $9.94 million, or +0.94% ahead of target; Motor Vehicle Purchase & Use Tax, $1.60 million or -3.19%; Lottery Transfer, $1.00 million – exactly on target; and the Education Fund Interest receipts were essentially $0, as was the target.Conclusion‘July’s target is always difficult to parse out from the annual Consensus Revenue Forecast. Over the last two decades, the July results have deviated from the July targets more often than not. One month’s results are insufficient to project a revenue trend ‘ up or down,’ said Secretary Lunderville. ‘However, we remain vigilant in the face of a weak recovery which seems to have lost momentum.’last_img read more

Prepare to engage with New Military Lending Act requirements

first_img 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Changes to the Military Lending Act (MLA) will have a significant impact on credit union consumer lending, Andrea Stritzke, CUNA Mutual Group’s director of lending compliance, told CUNA Regulatory Compliance School attendees Tuesday in Boston.Previously, the MLA wasn’t a major concern for credit unions because the rule’s consumer protections applied only to a handful of consumer credit products.But that changed when the rule was updated this summer.“You now have to worry about it,” Stritzke said, adding that the new rule:Expands the definition of consumer credit;Imposes a 36% annual percentage rate cap for consumer credit for servicemembers;Amends provisions related to assessing who’s covered under MLA (it’s now the credit union’s responsibility); andModifies necessary disclosures.The big change is the new definition for consumer credit in the MLA. continue reading »last_img read more

The Brisbane bayside property market on the up in 2020

first_imgThis property at 25 Waterloo Esplanade is on the market in Wynnum through Marc Sorrentino of Place Manly. Picture: supplied.The bayside real estate market had a slow start to 2019 but finished the year with a bang and local experts are predicting the favourable conditions will continue through 2020. According the Core Logic data, Gumdale was the best performing suburb in the Wynnum Herald catchment in 2019 with the median house price increasing 28.6 per cent to $1.019 million. The Wakerley median home price was up 4.4 per cent to $787,000 while Manly’s median house price increased 3.6 per cent to $790,000.The three suburbs were also the top performers for the decade with Gumdale, Wakerley and Manly seeing average annual increases of 5.3 per cent, 3.6 per cent and 3.3 per cent respectively. Marc Sorrentino of Place Manly said the bayside market was sluggish at the beginning of the year but “finished with a bang”. “I feel domestic politics with an election and a likely labour win contributed to (the slow start) along with international politics and trade wars,” he said. “Towards the end of the year buyers realised interest rates are at an all-time low and the market is moving up with most predicting a 20 per cent lift in Brisbane.“It’s for these reasons I think … come early January we will see this growth in sales continue and 2020 will be one of the better years in real estate for the bayside.” Marc Sorrentino of Place Manly. Picture: supplied.Mr Sorrentino specialises in high end waterside property. He said Manly was his standout suburb of 2019, taking out the region’s top waterside sales of last year. Mr Sorrentino was responsible for Manly’s most expensive sales of 2019 with 8 Wellington St selling for $1.95 million in November, 67 Oceana Tce selling for $1.88 million in June and 7 Britannia St selling for $1.775 million in January. “Interestingly this year we had many buyers coming from the Bulimba, Hawthorne and Morningside areas,” he said. “Factors such as a second flight path and increased noise along with development making that area even busier seem to be the driving forces for the move to the bayside suburbs.”Mr Sorrentino said there were still bargains to be had at the high end of the bayside market. “If buyers want big water views then it’s on The Esplanade where they’ll get the better bargains,” he said. “Land is about 25 per cent cheaper and you can still pick up a doer-upper for around $1 million, which is so cheap compared to any other waterfront (property) around Australia.” Gail Gobey of Sash and Gable Property said listings were down in the lower to mid-range market but buyer interest was still strong. Gail Gobey of Sash and Gable Property says there was plenty of buyer activity in the bayside market. Picture: supplied.“The sales we can report on in Wynnum, Manly, Manly West and Wynnum West all held their own with the end of the year showing strong growth with our auction clearance rate well above average,” she said. More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus10 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market10 hours agoMs Gobey was optimistic about the bayside market in 2020. “We are seeing investors return to the market – mainly (from) interstate, Sydney and Melbourne in particular. This will see prices maintained or increasing over the next two quarters and we expect a greater increase in property prices in this mid to low price range in the second half of 2020.”When it comes to the acreage market, Deborah Evans of Remax Results said savvy buyers were getting in before the next price jump.“We’re due for some great increases in value and that’s a big motivation for buyers to purchase, the buying market can sense prices will increase for that capital growth,” she said. Deborah Evans of Remax Results says interest in acreage property remains strong. Picture: supplied.Ms Evans said the spring selling season in 2019 was slow to start but predicted strong results in 2020. “I’m very excited about the new year. Everyone has recovered from the banking issues and with interest rates being so low, we’ve got committed buyers that are really looking for a quality location,” she said. Ms Evan said buyers looking at acreage areas such as Belmont, Chandler and Gumdale were chasing privacy, high end homes and easy access to the Brisbane CBD and the bay. “We’re seeing (high inquiry) right across the board and certainly in the higher end (of the market),” she said. “We’ve been selling properties the first couple of weeks on the market with multiple offers.”last_img read more

Gerrard out for season

first_img Gerrard, 33 later this month, has had his best season fitness-wise and his appearance in 220th Merseyside derby was his 36th consecutive Premier League start – equalling his previous longest run set between April 2006 and April 2007. He has played with the shoulder injury for several months but after an early collision with Everton midfielder Leon Osman on Sunday he looked in obvious discomfort. However, it did not prevent him completing 90 minutes – Gerrard has missed only 17 minutes of the league season after being forced off against Newcastle just over a week ago after feeling some pain in the shoulder – and putting in another impressive performance. But with little to play for in their remaining two matches at Fulham and QPR Liverpool have decided it makes more sense for Gerrard to have an operation now to give him an additional couple of weeks’ rehabilitation. “Liverpool have confirmed Steven Gerrard will undergo surgery on a recurrent shoulder problem this week,” said a statement from Liverpool. “The captain’s injury has progressively worsened in recent weeks and requires an operation to cure it. “Gerrard will now miss the final two games of 2012-13, but he is expected to be fit for the start of pre-season training this summer.” Press Association The England skipper will also miss the national team’s two friendlies against the Republic of Ireland at Wembley on May 29 and Brazil on June 2. Gerrard will go under the knife later this week and is expected to return in time for Liverpool’s pre-season programme. center_img Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is to have an operation on his left shoulder which will rule him out of the rest of the season.last_img read more
