This would shift these receipts to the next fiscal fiscal year.” The state’s fiscal year ends June 30. It would be a terrible idea to take $555 million from the $6 billion budget for the state general fund at this stage in the fiscal year.

It did not apply to other taxes such as sales taxes that are reimbursed to state by retailers. The coronavirus will have a significant impact on state revenues. Legislative leaders and the governor will need to address this issue in the months ahead.
