Sales tax collections rise in Vicksburg

VICKSBURG — For a second straight month, sales tax collections in Vicksburg were up, with August receipts running 9.54 percent over 2010.

Revenue to the city lags actual sales tax collections by two months. For example, receipts for April reflect taxes collected on sales in February.

So far, total disbursements for the 2011 fiscal year total $6.62 million, or .49 percent less than the $6.65 million collected for the same period in 2010.
