YORK – The August city sales tax receipts came in as the highest total for any August since the city sales
tax was created back in 1998.
The city took in $482,619.14 in August, compared to $426,694 last year. Last year’s August total was the
first time the receipts exceeded $400,000 in an August and was only the third month in history that a
monthly total went over $400,000.
Now the more-than-$400,000 total a month has become more of the norm, as the city has been seeing
record high sales tax receipts this past year.
August’s total was the second highest monthly total in the history of the city’s local sales tax, only being
beat by last month.
In the last 12 months, the city’s taken in nearly $5.2 million in sales tax revenue – that compares to $4.4
million in the previous 12-month period.
During the last fiscal year, the city took in $4.485 million. The city’s sales tax revenues, so far in this fiscal
year, has already exceeded last year even though an entire month still remains in the 2022-23 fiscal
year. With one month left, the city has already taken in $4.75 million.
In August, the city took in $160,673 in LB 357 funds, which is 13% higher than the amount that came in
last August. The LB 357 funds are earmarked for certain projects.
The regular sales tax is used for municipal operations.
