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.

Which County Has Highest Median Adjusted Gross Income?

Adjusted gross income (AGI) is not spread evenly across the state.
According to FTB statistics for 2011, Marin County had the highest median AGI -- just over $52,000 -- among counties.
Over 118,000 taxpayers filed returns from the county. San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties ranked second and third in income, with a median income of nearly $50,000 and $48,000 respectively.  Returns from these two South Bay counties totaled just over 1.1 million.
Los Angeles County, with over 4 million returns and a median income of about $30,000, ranked 38th in income among the state's 58 counties. Imperial County’s 60,000 returns reported the lowest median AGI -- just above $23,000 and less than half the income of Marin, San Mateo or Santa Clara Counties.
