Cache County sales tax revenue falls flat

LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Despite some signs that the economy is improving, Cache County officials say the northern Utah area’s sale tax revenues have essentially remained flat.County Executive Lynn Lemon says figures from the first two months of 2010 show tax revenues are actually lower, when compared to the same two months of 2008.In January, the county option sales tax totaled $263,149, a significant drop from the $290,693 in January 2009 and the $297,385 collected in January 2008.February’s figure for 2010 was $270,887. That’s a slight increase over the $268,733 recorded in February 2009, but far less than the February 2008 total of $291,826.Lemon calls the numbers both discouraging and perplexing. He says reports of an upward trend in the national economy are not evidenced in Cache County.
