July 2022 Inflation

Certification Revenue Estimate




Current Dollars Versus Inflation-Adjusted Dollars
January 2021 to June 2022

The difference between current (non-inflation-adjusted) dollars and constant (inflation-adjusted) dollars represents the share of sales tax revenue attributable to recent price inflation rather than to growth in the physical numbers or measures of taxable goods and services.

The widening of this gap indicates that the share of sales tax revenue attributable to inflation has been growing rapidly.
