(Harrisburg) -- The state's Revenue Department says year-to-date tax collections totaled $13.4 billion at the end of December -- the midpoint of the commonwealth's fiscal year. 

The figures are slightly more than the $13.3 billion taxpayers had paid at the same point last year. 

The department did not compare actual tax collections against anticipated amounts since those monthly projections have not been finalized as a budget stalemate stretches into a seventh month. 

Officials say collections of most major lines showed modest increases in December from a year earlier, including the sales tax and personal income tax and the personal income tax.

Corporate and realty transfer tax revenues were down for the month compared to last year's figures.
