Local Government Funds
Library and Local Government Support Fund
Amounts Distributed to Counties, Calendar Year 1990
The library and local government support fund was created in
House Bill 291 of the 115th General Assembly. It replaces the
locally-collected intangible property tax, which was repealed
beginning in calendar year 1986. This fund provides state aid
to counties on a monthly basis for libraries and local
governments, which were receiving revenue from the intangible
property tax. This fund is comprised of 6.3 percent of the
preceding month's personal income tax collections.
The total amount distributed to the counties for calendar
year 1990 was $262,655,557, a 4.5 percent increase over the
$251,330,881 distributed in calendar year 1989.
The revenues received from the library and local government
support fund are distributed by the County Budget Commission.
During 1990, less approximately 98.5 percent of the total
distributed went to libraries, while 1.5 percent went to
local governments with the balance going to libraries.
