Okla. treasurer: February revenue collections dip

By  | 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Treasurer Ken Miller says overall revenue collections dipped slightly in February for just the fifth time in the last 12 months.

Miller released figures on Monday that showed gross receipts to the state's treasury were lower than those from the same month in the previous year. He says gross collections in February were down about 2.4 percent, or almost $20 million, from February 2012.

Miller reported revenue from income and sales taxes were up, while taxes on motor vehicles and oil and natural gas both declined.

He reported monthly collections were slightly affected by the inclusion of leap day in February 2012.
