ATLANTA - A report shows Georgia's revenues totaled nearly $1.39 billion in May, an increase of 3.1 percent over the same month a year ago. <br />
The office of Gov. Nathan Deal said Monday that individual income tax collections were up while corporate tax collections decreased. <br />
Meanwhile, year-to-date collections total $16.1 billion. That's an increase of 4.5 percent compared to the same point a year ago and keeps the state on track to meet projections for the fiscal year ending June 30. <br />
Deal's office says tax reforms including the elimination of the auto sales tax and a reduction in the sales tax on energy in manufacturing have significantly affected Georgia's tax structure.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced today that a $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the man responsible for the robbery of Rabun County Bank earlier this year.
