AN ACT REQUIRING THE DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE TO REPORT PRELIMINARY TAX REVENUE.
Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to require forthwith the department of revenue to report preliminary tax revenues bi-monthly, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same as follows:
Section 6 of chapter 14 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2006 Official Edition, is hereby amended by adding the following clause:-
8. Shall prepare and submit a bimonthly report of preliminary tax revenue collected each month. The commissioner shall submit these reports to the governor, the chair and ranking minority member of the house committee on ways and means and the chair and ranking minority member of the senate committee on ways and means, on or before the third business day following the fifteenth day of each month and on or before the third business day of the following month; provided, however, that the commissioner shall submit the report for June on the day after the department completes the processing of June tax revenues.
