June 2019 Monthly Briefing
REVENUE: FY 2019 ENDS WITH FEDERAL SOURCE SURGE—REVENUES FINISH VERY CLOSE TO EXPECTATIONS
Jim Muschinske, Revenue Manager

To close out the fiscal year, base receipts grew $750 million in June. The bulk of the monthly increase was due to a $705 million jump in federal sources. Not only was the federal source performance strong, but it compared with an extremely weak month last year. June had one less receipting day compared to a year earlier.
