Sales Tax Collections: The Christmas shopping season was a bit off for a number of area retailers. That’s evidenced by sales tax collections for November and December in the 10 incorporated cities with retail businesses across Liberty County. Sales taxes collected during those two months are returned to cities in January and February. According to information from the Texas Comptroller’s Office, sales tax collections for that two-month period fell by 6.34 percent countywide. That means for businesses in those ten towns, taxable sales were down a whopping $7.009 million with total retail sales of approximately $101.76 million during the two-month shopping season. The ten towns of Liberty County benefiting from retail sales taxes are Devers, Ames, Daisetta, Hardin, Plum Grove, Kenefick, North Cleveland, Cleveland, Dayton and Liberty.
Elections: Just five more business days remain in the candidate filing period for the May 6th city, school and hospital district elections.
