WCBoL_Seal White Plains, NY – The Westchester County sales tax revenue jumped 8.67% over the same period last year, according to a report given by county budget officials during a Budget & Appropriations Committee meeting this morning at the Westchester County Board of Legislators (WCBoL). 

Though Westchester County Budget Director Lawrence Soule called the jump in sales tax revenue a “good sign,” he said that quarterly reconciliation figures from New York State would supply a more accurate picture of how the county’s projected revenues are faring. 

Still, the $35,644,226 collected in April 2011 represents a sizable $2,844,163 increase over what was collected in the same period a year ago. Over the past two years, the sales tax revenue from April 2009 to April 2011 has increased 14.57%, suggesting that economic activity across Westchester is on the rebound.

  1. How much does inflation play in this increase and how does inflation effect county costs? There seems to be a disconnect in implied sales increases and all those empty stores and offices I see in the county.

  2. Good, so that means a REAL TAX cut next year. But as we all know these assholes will spend it like drunken sailors
