DALLAS — Oklahoma tax collections could reach pre-recession levels by mid-2012, Treasurer Ken Miller said Wednesday, as the state economy builds on gains achieved in 2011. “We saw a quickened pace of the recovery for 2011,” he said.

“We saw healthy growth each month ranging from 4% to 16% with an average at the double-digit mark,” Miller said at the state capitol. “December was 11.1% better than the prior year, the fourth quarter was 10.5% ahead of the final three months of 2010, and total year collections surpassed the previous year by 9.6%.”
