State tax revenues in Colorado amount to $3.3 billion in the first quarter of 2019, the 22nd highest tally among the 50 states, according to newly released data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

The Census Bureau reported that property tax revenues in the state were unavailable; general sales and gross receipts taxes, $819 million; license fees, $195 million; and individual income taxes, $1.7 billion.

The numbers do not include taxes levied by local governments, which in some cases determine property tax levels, according to the agency.

Under the Census Bureau's definitions, the phrase "state government" means the executive, legislative and judicial branches, as well as agencies, panels and public bodies that are somewhat autonomous from the state.

Nationwide, state tax collections rose 2 percent during the first quarter of the year when compared to the same period in 2018, the Census Bureau reported. State revenues totaled $256.4 billion in the first three months of 2019, compared to $251.4 in Q1 of 2018, according to the analysis.
