Notes

  1. Personal Property Tax revenues collected to date represent 96.0 percent of budgeted revenue and indicate that FY 2010 revenues may exceed the budget by $0.2 million.
  2. The substantial increase in sales tax revenue is primarily related to one-time repayments in the prior year (FY 2009) to Fairfax County of $1.5 million for sales tax collections from businesses with an Alexandria address that are actually located in Fairfax County.  Not including the repayment, year-over-year sales from August through October increased just 0.2% compared to last year.
  3. The decrease in Intergovernmental Revenue through November reflects a change in the timing of Federal payments.  Later in the year, the City may experience a shortfall in aid from the Commonwealth due to its ongoing budget problems.
  4. The increase in the Charges for City Services category is largely due to greater year-to-date collections from parking meter receipts, refuse user charges, and ambulance fees.
  5. The continued decrease Revenue from the Use of Money and Property reflects the extremely low interest rates budgeted and earned on City operating funds, which are conservatively invested for safety and liquidity reasons.
  6. As of November 30, 2009, actual General Fund revenues totaled $248.9 million, which is 2.5 percent above FY 2009 revenues of $242.8 million for the same time period last year.  At this time we expect that estimate to show a shortfall of between 1 and 2 percent (compared to the original FY 2010 budget estimate of General Fund revenues of $530.00 million), primarily due to lower real property revenues and intergovernmental revenues.
