Auditor Roland Tkach remains cautiously optimistic about sales tax collection in Huron County.

Numbers recently released by Tkach reflect September sales.

The county brought in $719,378 in sales tax in September, up from $654,958 in September 2012.

Mom and Pop stores made up 30 percent of the newest total, while big-box stores, like Walmart and Kmart, accounted for 27 percent.

However, liquor sales slipped in September. "We had a hiccup with the liquor sales compared to last year," he said.

All this county tax revenue comes from retailers/sales correct???

1 So what happens when the government slows on unemployment payouts?
2 runs out of other people's money to hand out to our heavily welfare dependent county?
3 those who remain employed, continue to keep the clamps on discretionary spending?
will there be layoffs within the nonessential public employee class?
or further cuts for the public??
it's only a matter of time....
who will be the first to suffer??
Those in the ruling class or those being ruled?
