Sales taxes collected last year by Texas County merchants increased about 11 percent from 2020, according to a Missouri Department of Revenue reports.
Retailers collect three half-cent sales taxes — one for debt retirement on the justice center, general operations and a third for capital improvements, upkeep and maintenance.
Each contributed about $1.3 million. The county also receives revenue from a “use tax” on out-of-state sales. That totaled $508,893 for the year. That was up 17 percent from 2020.
