Notes

  1. Personal Property Tax:   Revenues collected to date represent 97.6 percent of budgeted revenue. As discussed previously, preliminary collections to date indicate revenues may exceed the budget by $0.2 million.
  2. Local Sales and Use Taxes:  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.  Excluding one-time repayments, tear-over-year retail sales from September through November are up around 1.3 percent.
  3. Intergovernmental Revenue:  Later in the year, the City may experience a shortfall in aid from the Commonwealth due to its ongoing budget problems.
  4. Charges for City Services:  Increase in this category is largely due to greater year-to-date collections from parking meter receipts, refuse user charges, and ambulance fees.
  5. Revenue from the Use of Money and Property:  Continued decreased revenue in this category reflects the extremely low interest rates budgeted and earned on City operating funds, which are conservatively invested for safety and liquidity reasons.
  6. Year-to-Date Revenues:  As of December 31, 2009, actual General Fund revenues totaled $265.6 million, which is 3.2 percent above FY 2009 revenues of $257.4 million for the same time period last year.  With the submission of the FY 2011 budget on February 9, 2010, a revised estimate for FY 2010 revenues will be provided to City Council.  That estimate will show a shortfall of $6.6 million or 1.2 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.
