Sales tax receipts were up in three of the four major cities across Northwest Arkansas this month.
Fayetteville, Rogers and Bentonville each showed increases for November collections, while Springdale showed a decline over the same month last year.
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 by the Fayetteville Flyer represent the 1 percent going into general funds.
November sales tax revenue is collected in December and delivered in late January.
Here are the specifics:
Fayetteville received $1,780,483 for a 2.95 percent increase from last year, a difference of $51,087.
Bentonville collected $3,778,343, a $2,892,266 increase over last year when the city received $886,077.
