DIllon’s sales tax collection up in December

DILLON – Dillon’s sales tax collection for December 2009 was up 2.77 percent, a positive trend seen two months in a row by town staff. December’s collection had an overall $14,900 increase over 2008.

According to town treasurer Carrie McDonald, an increase in sales tax collection for November and December was caused by late filers. Without late filers, the town’s collection would have been down 2.2 percent for the month, or $11,900.

For all of 2009, Dillon is down 7.55 percent, or $307,000. This is good news, as McDonald anticipated the town to be down 10 percent for the year.

“We’ll keep it in the fund balance,” she said. “We’re not going to spend it at this time. We’ll continue to watch 2010 for trends.”
