September sales tax collections, based on retail sales made in August 2011, but also includes delinquent collections from prior periods.

Due to the .85% tax increase, tax collections are no longer an accurate comparison for year-to-year activity. Instead, the monthly sales and use tax report will also include net taxable amounts, which are the amount of goods sold or purchased that are subject to sales or use tax.
