WASHINGTON — State tax revenues continued to rebound in the second quarter but stock market volatility combined with recession jitters in August could affect tax collections in the third quarter, the Rockefeller Institute said Thursday.

The preliminary data show 46 states reported personal income tax growth for the April to June quarter. The states said total tax revenue increased by 11.4% compared to the second quarter of 2010, the strongest year-over-year growth since 2005. Tax collections have increased for six consecutive quarters after five quarters of declines.
