    Arghh. Website keeps rejecting my reply. Files too large? Start by comparing the two attached direct S&L tax export files, one from the 2012 model (2010 data file) and the other from the latest 2013 model/data file. Event, sectors, and Industry Sales identical in each. Look at the Tax on Production & Imports column total. Huge difference.

    Hi Ken, I apologize for the inconvenience with attaching the Excel spreadsheets. I was however unable to open them as they are too large. You could try to compress the file before posting to the forum or attaching the actual IMPLAN model. The IMPLAN model can be located here: Computer > Libraries > Documents > My Documents > MIG > IMPLAN > Models. You can also email us your attachments to: support@implan.com and reference the title of your forum post in the subject line. Thanks!

    Back at it again. Hope you had a nice Christmas. Just sent the S&L tax export files via email to the support mail address. Let me know next steps. Thanks!

    Hi Kenneth! I apologize for the delay of our response. Both the 2009 DE data set (on which your 2012 results are based) and the 2013 DE data set show the state collecting ~ 3 billion in taxes on production and imports net of gov subsidy (close to published BEA GSP data). However, starting with 2012 IMPLAN data sets we tightened the individual industry collections of TOPI to state level BEA Gross State Products data controls. Delaware does not have general sales tax but rather, imposes a gross receipts tax on all industries which has a lower average rate. This difference in methodology particularly reduces the tax collections by retail industries and also seems to have affected the Real estate activity tax collections. Hope this helps!
