HARRISBURG, Pa. -

Officials say Pennsylvania's tax collections in April are way behind as the month comes to a close.

The state says it's facing a shortfall of $477-million, mostly because of lagging personal income tax collections.

That compounds a deficit that was about $170 million at the beginning of the month and presents another hurdle for Governor Corbett's election-year budget.
