SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The Census Bureau conducts the Quarterly Summary of State and Local 
Government Tax Revenue, using the F-71 (Quarterly Survey of Property 
Tax Collections), F-72 (Quarterly Survey of State Tax Collections), and 
F-73 (Quarterly Survey of Non-Property Taxes) forms. The Quarterly 
Summary of State and Local Government Tax Revenue provides quarterly 
estimates of state and local government tax revenue at the national 
level, as well as detailed tax revenue data for individual states. The 
information contained in this survey is the most current information 
available on a nationwide basis for state and local government tax 
collections.
    The Census Bureau needs state and local tax data to publish 
benchmark statistics on taxes, to provide data to the Bureau of 
Economic Analysis for Gross Domestic Product (GDP) calculations and 
other economic indicators, and to provide data for economic research 
and comparative studies of governmental finances. Tax collection data 
are used to measure economic activity for the Nation as a whole, as 
well as for comparison among the various states. Economists and public 
policy analysts use the data to assess general economic conditions and 
state and local government financial activities.
    The Census Bureau is requesting an extension of the approval of the 
current forms. No changes to the forms are being requested.
    For the Quarterly Survey of Non-Property Taxes (Form F-73) we will 
mail letters quarterly to a sample of approximately 1,800 local tax 
collection agencies known to have substantial collections of local

    For the Quarterly Survey of Property Tax Collections (Form F-71) we 
will mail letters quarterly to a sample of approximately 5,500 local

II. Method of Collection

    In addition to reporting current quarter data, respondents may 
report data for the previous eight quarters or submit revisions to 
their previously submitted data. In the event that a respondent cannot 
report online, they may request a form as a last resort.

the sample from the latest available data.
