Sales tax revenue rises across northwest Arkansas

Sales tax revenue was up this month in all four major northwest Arkansas cities, with Bentonville making a comeback from back-to-back down months compared to the same period 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 June reflects April sales tax received in May.
