MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s less than stellar ski season so far this winter has not helped state revenues.

Figures released Thursday by the Agency of Administration show that consumption taxes - like the sales tax and gasoline tax - underperformed their targets in January.

The good news for state officials is that those shortfalls have been mostly offset by better-than-projected performance in the person income and corporate income tax categories.

Overall revenues for January were short of their target by a bit less than 1 percent. For the first seven months of the fiscal year, they’ve been short of projections by less than a fifth of 1 percent.
