Ohio Counties Enjoy Stronger Sales Tax Collections
- Jun 21, 2012 | Susan McLain
- Montgomery County reported a 5.7 percent increase.
- Green County reported a 1.9 percent increase.
- Warren County collections “jumped 9.9 percent.”
However, Butler County collections “…dropped for the first time since September 2011, by 0.6 percent.”
Although the sales tax improvements are a positive, Montgomery County officials caution that “…the rebound of sales tax revenues does not make up for a drop in property-tax collections or for state cuts to the Local Government Fund and other state funding.”
