Record year for sales tax revenues in La Salle County

Posted by wlpo on April 18, 2015

2014 will go down as a historic year for public safety sales tax revenues in La Salle County.

The quarter percent tax brought in over $2.7 million to the county’s coffers, the most ever since the tax started in 1999. The 2014 tax revenue was $121,000 higher than the year before. May was the only month in 2014 where sales tax revenues were below the prior year.

The La Salle County Public Safety Sales Tax is tacked onto all merchandise you buy except for groceries, medicine, cars, boats and motorcycles.
