The Ohio Department of Taxation (ODT) has posted the July 2018 Public Library Fund (PLF) distribution. Overall state revenues continue to come in above estimates, which again led to a healthy July PLF distribution of $37,657,329 — more than $2.1 million (+ 6%) more than the ODT’s estimate of $35,517,607 for the month. By comparison, the July 2017 distribution was $37,537,498 (+ 0.32%).
Year-to-date, the actual PLF total distribution of $230,108,712 is more than 4% higher than the ODT’s YTD projection of $221,235,659.
A look at the PLF distribution for the past three years and a link to an Excel spreadsheet listing each county’s distribution total for July 2018 can be found on the OLC website.
