Clinton County New York Reports Strong Sales Tax Revenues


“Three years ago, as the recession deepened, [Clinton County, New York] failed to meet sales-tax projections for the first time in a decade.” So expectations were lowered the past two years. Those expectations were met and exceeded in 2011 and now, it looks like 2012 will do the same.

In May, “…sales-tax revenue was $1,200,926 ahead of projections. Through April, it was $1,124,591 ahead of pace. At the end of March, revenue was $709,398 ahead.” This last jump is making the county feel pretty positive of projections for 2012 and 2013. With fishing tournaments and an active marina, the county thinks sales tax revenue will continue to grow.

Legislator Sara Rowden (D-Area 4, Town of Plattsburgh), said, “We are lucky. A lot of other counties are not experiencing higher sales-tax figures.” Sara is chair of the county’s Finance Committee.

Mayor Donald Kasprzak said, “Since becoming mayor, we have always budgeted conservatively regarding sales tax revenues,” and he is pleased with the figures.
