HONOLULU — The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) said the $52.3 million it received from the general excise tax (GET) surcharge in the quarter that ended June 30 was about $8 million less than was forecasted, bringing the light rail project’s total tax revenue shortfall to $39 million, the Pacific Business News reported.

Overall, HART has collected a total of $1.52 billion in surcharge revenue for the rail project, which is about 1.18% below projections. The half-percent surcharge on the state’s 4% GET, which went into effect in January 2007, was scheduled to sunset in 2022 before legislation passed earlier this year extended that date to Dec. 31, 2027.
