JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri coffers grew in November, helping to fuel a 3.5 percent increase in state revenues this budget year.

The state Office of Administration reported Thursday that state revenue in November was 3.3 percent greater than in the same month in 2009.

Sales, individual income and corporate taxes all have increased during the first five months of the budget year.

Revenue last month from sales taxes was 19 percent higher than in November 2009. Individual income taxes increased by nearly 1 percent from last November, but corporate taxes were down 11 percent from November 2009.
