SACRAMENTO – State Controller John Chiang today released his monthly report covering California’s cash balance, receipts and disbursements in October 2012, showing that total revenues were $207.9 million above (4.4 percent) projections contained in the 2012-13 State budget.
“October’s numbers were positive, due in large part to strong income tax receipts,” said Chiang. “More importantly, total year-to-date revenue is spot-on with the budget’s projection.”
Personal income taxes in the month of October rose $378.4 million above (10.6 percent) projections, while sales taxes also were up by $28.8 million (4.4 percent) relative to projections. Corporate taxes were down for the month, coming in $131.3 million below (47 percent) projections.
The State ended the last fiscal year with a cash deficit of $9.6 billion. As of October 31, that cash deficit totaled $24.7 billion, and is being covered with $14.7 billion of internal borrowing (temporary loans from special funds), and $10 billion of external borrowing.

Jaramillo is one of the few female artisan bakers (panaderos) producing authentic Mexican pastries at Saguayo Market, located on Center Street in Stockton, California.
For Jaramillo, her trade of baking pan dulce comes from the many hours she spent as a child in a bakery owned by her parents in Michoacán, Mexico.
