MTF Forecast: Modest Growth in Tax Revenues in 2016

Tax revenues will grow by $1.1 billion, or 4.5 percent, to $25.5 billion in fiscal 2016, continuing the trend of modest growth yet still below that of previous economic recoveries, according to a new forecast released today by the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation.“It’s alarming that even with employment gains and a healthier economic climate, the state faces a monumental budget shortfall in fiscal 2015 and substantial challenges in 2016,” Bagley said.
