April 27, 2012 April 2012 1% Local Sales Tax Distribution
This month’s statewide 1% local distribution of $33.3 million came out yesterday and was up 7.7% percent compared to last year. This was very close to the 8-month fiscal year-to-date rate of 7.3%, which is very close to our upper-end forecast.
The 3-month averages dropped quite a bit because the big 20.2% gain in the January distribution fell out.
Notably, Lehi, Bountiful, Murray, Provo, Park City and St. George distributions saw double-digits growth. Extra growth probably stems from car and truck sales and construction activity.
