CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - State revenues for January came in 10 percent, or $10.6 million, ahead of target, keeping New Hampshire ahead of its plan for the first seven months of the year.

January revenues totaled $114.8 million. The two-year $10.7 billion budget ends June 30. Business revenues rebounded in January, coming in ahead of schedule by 38 percent after several months of falling below target. March and April are significant months for business tax revenues and will offer a better indication whether the state will hit its budget targets. Gov. Maggie Hassan has predicted business revenues will end the year below target.

Money from the meals and rooms tax and the tobacco tax came in ahead of schedule, while the interest and dividends tax and revenues from court fees were below target.
