County sees sales tax gains for the year

Van Zandt County cities wrapped up a solid year of sales tax revenue gains with a solid month of collections according to the office of Texas State Comptroller Glenn Hegar, growing by approximately 4.02 percent overall when comparing December 2018 with totals for the same calendar month in 2017.

Outside of Canton, which saw a slight dip for the month, Edgewood, Edom, Grand Saline, Van and Wills Point all ended on the positive side of the ledger.

Wills Point, which saw the biggest drop locally among county cities in percentage change for the month of November, bounced back in December by receiving a payment of $93,569.41. That total was a county-best $7,274.25 higher than the city received last year at this time.
