June Sales Tax Down For County

McDonald County Press - - COUNTY -

Sales tax re­ceipts for June, when com­pared to 2016 re­ceipts for the same time pe­riod, show that rev­enue is down for the county as a whole but most towns — with the ex­cep­tion of South­west City — saw an in­crease in rev­enue from this time last year.

Due to an er­ror in dis­tri­bu­tion, sales tax de­posits to Good­man are still be­ing with­held un­til the sur­plus sum has been col­lected. City Clerk Karla Nor­ton said it will be ap­prox­i­mately four months be­fore the city re­ceives another de­posit.

In Septem­ber, $28,450.02 was de­posited into Gen­eral Rev­enue from sales tax rev­enue — nearly $21,000 more than ex­pected. City of­fi­cials con­tacted the Mis­souri Depart­ment of Rev­enue for con­fir­ma­tion and, af­ter in­ves­ti­ga­tion, it was re­cently de­ter­mined that the funds were wrongly dis­trib­uted.

Sales tax re­ceipts for June dis­trib­uted in July are listed first be­low. They are fol­lowed by last year’s fig­ure with the dif­fer­ence be­tween the two, whether an in­crease or de­crease, listed last.
