California State Controller John Chiang offers this daily tax tracker to follow personal income taxes, sales and use taxes and corporate taxes -- the three major sources of revenue for the State.

The site will be updated regularly throughout each business day. Preliminary posts use dollar figures from tax administration agencies, while the following day the Controller will post reconciled (actual cash) figures. The latest figures are always available via direct download. Preliminary sales tax figures, along with personal income tax withholdings will be available by 10:30 a.m., followed by total personal income and corporate tax receipts, along with final sales tax numbers between 1:30 and 4:00 p.m. the same business day.

The chart on the right of this screen tracks the cumulative total of income, sales and corporate tax and compares it against estimated benchmarks for the month.

For Those Who Can't Make the April 15 Tax Deadline

For those who can’t quite make the April 15 tax deadline this year, the State of California offers an automatic filing extension through October 15, 2014.

Nearly 1.6 million taxpayers had an extension for the 2012 tax year. For those who are unable to make a timely tax return, FTB advises: If the taxpayer is due a refund, he or she must file their return by October 15, 2014. If the taxpayer has a balance due and wants to avoid penalties and interest, he or she must pay the amount owed by April 15, 2014, then file the return by October 15, 2014. (For more details on filing an extension, see FTB's website:
