Sales tax revenue stays on the positive side
While all clocks in Burleson sprung ahead Sunday to comply with Daylight Saving Time, Burleson’s sales tax revenue keeps ticking along.
The city received a $91,567 more sales tax revenue in March than it did in the same month last year, according to figures released last week by State Comptroller Glenn Hegar.
Burleson and all Johnson County cities except Godley received an increase as Hegar sent Finance Director Rhett Clark $1,343,314, an increase of 7.31 percent more than the $1,251,747 the city received in March of last year, according to Hegar’s figures.
“It’s good,” Clark said. “This is the fifth allocation of our new budget year and continues us in the right direction.”
The allocations are based on sales made in January by businesses that report tax monthly. The monies are collected in January, counted in February and distributed in March.
