Maragos: County Sales Tax Revenues
at Mid-Year 2013
Strong Economic Recovery
After Superstorm Sandy Continues
Mineola, NY- Sales Tax revenues
for the first six months of 2013 for the County are up
11.2% and confirm the continuing strong economic recovery
after Superstorm Sandy. The July 12, 2013 sales tax check
came in a very strong 61.9% higher than the same period
last year due to the State’s adjustments for underpayments
in the May and June checks distributed to the County.
“This is indeed good news for County taxpayers as it underscores the
strength of the economic recovery since Superstorm Sandy,” said Comptroller
George Maragos. “The economic strength is rippling
throughout our County, creating jobs and opportunities.
It explains the low 6% unemployment in the County and
the robust employment gains.”
Below are comparisons to 2012.
