October 20, 2011 UPDATE: B&C Road Funds Misallocation Explanation and Details
Here’s the explanation we have received from UDOT’s comptroller:
State Fleet submitted the same refund of $4.68M twice, reducing the amount of total revenue available for distribution. The Tax Commission made the correction in their October numbers, meaning that the cities and counties will see the funding correction in their September/October distribution, which will actually be made in November.
Their distribution should be somewhat comparable to last year. However, even accounting for the refund error, it is safe to say that Motor Fuel and Special Fuel was down 13% for the first quarter of FY12.
