Sales tax revenue was up again this month in the four major northwest Arkansas cities compared to the same period last year.
Bentonville continued its comeback with a second monthly increase in a row after reporting back-to-back down months for February and March sales.
Each city collects a 2 percent sales tax. One percent goes into a general fund. The other 1 percent goes toward repayment of bonds. The numbers reported here represent the 1 percent going into general funds.
Sales tax revenue delivered in July reflects May sales tax received in June.
