Has the City lost LGDF funding before?
Until January of 2011, 10% of total income tax collections were deposited into LGDF for distribution to cities and counties. Distributions occur on a per capita basis. The percentage share of state income tax revenue was reduced from 10% to 6% following the enactment of the temporary income tax increase in 2011. The percentage was decreased because the state opted to keep the entirety of the new increased revenues for itself. When the income tax rates declined in January 2015, the LGDF share increased to 8% of total collections. In the absence of any statutory changes, this percentage will remain the same until 2025 when it will return to approximately 10% of total state income tax collections.
