Sales tax revenue was up this month in three of the four largest cities in Northwest Arkansas. Only Springdale 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 March reflects January sales tax received in February.
