Mention was made here yesterday about a monthly downturn in Benton County sales tax receipts and a comment on the Iconoclast blog that Washington County was doing better than its neighbor.
Overall, that doesn't appear to be the case. A report in the Morning News today said county sales tax revenue for 2007 declined from 2006 in the case of the shares received by Washington County, Springdale and Fayetteville. This makes me feel somewhat less alarmed by the slight growth in sales tax revenues in Little Rock.
