Tulsa Sales Tax Numbers Up Compared To Last Year

Posted: Updated:

Sales tax figures for the City of Tulsa are up compared to this time last year.

New numbers from mid-August to mid-September show Tulsa collected $18,856,756.

That's 5.6% above the same period in 2011.

According to city officials, the increase is due to an additional .167 percent sales tax now that's going toward the Fix Our Streets program.

For the fiscal year, the city has received $75,407,785.

"Each month we are happy to see the sales tax revenues continue toward recovery," said Mayor Dewey Bartlett. "We have been operating for four years with less money and are just now returning to the sales tax revenue levels we had in 2008. We continue to search for ways to improve efficiencies and deliver services to citizens at lower costs."
