HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania collected more in state taxes in November than it did a year ago, but not by much.

The Revenue Department reported Tuesday that taxpayers paid $1.8 billion last month compared with $1.7 billion in November 2014.

Officials say the 6 percent state sales tax generated $761 million last month, compared with $749 million a year earlier.

The other major tax, the personal income tax, brought in $765 million, up from $702 million in November 2014.

For the first five months of the fiscal year that began July 1, the state collected $10.7 billion, compared to $10.6 billion a year earlier.

The department did not compare actual tax collections against anticipated amounts. Lawmakers still have not approved a budget so monthly revenue estimates have not been finalized.
