The Department of Revenue today reported that the monthly revenue collection for July came in at $1.353 billion, an increase of $103 million over July of a year ago, representing an 8.2 percent increase and exceeding the montly benchmark by $79 million.

The Commonwealth's target revenue collection for FY11 is $19.098 billion.

The FY10 collection was $18.538 billion.
