New York state tax collections are up 13% in the first four months of the state's fiscal year compared to the year before, according to the office of New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli.

The increase in tax collections for all New York government funds was primarily due to an increase in personal income tax receipts, DiNapoli's office said in its July cash report. PIT collections jumped 18% in the period, largely through a jump in estimated tax collections in April rather than through any increase in withheld taxes over the four months.
