Sales tax continues to be a solid revenue source for Huron County.

The latest report released by Auditor Roland Tkach was another record-breaker.

The new numbers showed $999,203 was the county’s portion of sales tax collected in June, which was $144,000 more than the same period of 2016.

The $999,203 figure was an all-time high for June.

Tkach said sales tax collected so far in 2017 is 9 percent ahead of a year ago.

In June, Mom-and-Pop stores accounted for 33 percent of the sales tax total, while big-box stores made up 24 percent.

Vehicle sales were at 17 percent.

Liquor sales were down 3 percent compared to the same month in 2016.

Tkach was pleased with the overall sales tax report.

“But, I’ll continue to monitor this closely,” he added.

Sales tax on out-of-state sellers was up 54 percent, contributing to the boost.

Tkach said he also believes the county is benefiting from all the associated sales from the pipeline work in Huron County.

“I think that is a factor in the increases,” he added.
