Update:  Supplemental LIT Distributions

By Paige E. Sansone, CPA, Partner, April 19, 2018

Previously, we published an article that stated the supplemental distribution of LIT (to be distributed in May) should be receipted to the Rainy Day Fund.  We have recently obtained information from the State Board of Accounts that indicates the supplemental distribution may be receipted to the Rainy Day Fund or the General Fund unless otherwise directed.   If the distribution includes Economic Development and/or Public Safety LIT those amounts may be receipted to the LIT Economic Development (EDIT) and LIT Public Safety funds. The uses of the supplemental distributions are limited to the uses of the fund into which they are receipted.

According to an informational report from the State Budget Agency dated November 15, 2017, the counties listed below have excess balances above 15% in their trust accounts.  Please note that the numbers listed below are estimates.  The actual distributions will not be finalized until May, 2018.
