The September payment for Grand Forks sales tax collections was the third smallest of nine payments this calendar year. The one-million 426-thousand dollar check pushed the year-to-date total to over 14-point-four million dollars. That’s down better than four-percent over the same time one-year ago. The 2016 tally also marked the first time in recent history that collections failed to out-perform the previous year.
The city budgeted for a three-percent reduction in sales tax revenue in the 2018 budget.
