The Hawai‘i Department of Taxation yesterday released its preliminary estimates on general fund tax revenues. The estimated tax revenues for April 2011 totals more than $490 million—that’s an increase of $134 million over the previous month.

Governor Neil Abercrombie called the report “promising,” attributing the strong performance in part to better business accounting procedures instituted by the Tax Department.

Under the leadership of Director Fred Pablo, the Governor said the Tax Department has been identifying improvements and changing old policies and practices.

Pablo was the former Budget Director for Maui County, and previously served as the state’s District Tax Manager on Maui.
