Sales tax revenue up in Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers

Sales tax revenue was up this month in three of the four largest cities in Northwest Arkansas. Only Bentonville reported a drop in collections compared to the same month last year.

Each city collects a 2 percent sales tax. One percent goes into a general fund. The other 1 percent goes toward repayment of bonds. The numbers reported here represent the 1 percent going into general funds.

Sales tax revenue delivered in February reflects December sales tax received in January.
