City’s restaurant tax collections beat projections
Published: December 27,2011
STARKVILLE — Starkville’s 2011 restaurant tax revenues are ahead of the pace set in 2010, according to the city’s sales tax report.
Mayor Parker Wiseman tells the Starkville Daily News the city expects to finish the year strong when November and December reports come in.
Total restaurant tax revenues for 2011 through October add up to $1.24 million, ahead of January-October 2010’s total of $1.17 million.
That means 2011 is also on pace to beat the annual restaurant tax revenue record of $1.38 million set in 2010.
November and December restaurant tax revenues would only need to bring in $94,921 to equal last year’s totals.
The total restaurant tax revenue for October 2011 was $132,486.89, an increase of 6.56 percent over revenue for October 2010.
