City's sales tax decline narrows [Odessa American, Texas]

Jan. 12--Declines in the City of Odessa's sales tax revenue from the state continued to narrow in January, figures released Wednesday by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts show.

January sales tax revenue dropped by 1.67 percent from the same period of last year to more than $3.18 million. A fifth of the monthly sales tax check goes to the Odessa Development Corporation, or about $637,043.

The rate of decline steadily narrowed in recent months, following a 7.8 drop in December and an 8.75 percent drop in November compared to the same periods of 2015. Sales tax reached a year of decline in June.

The Odessa City Council budgeted about $3.3 million less in sales taxes, about $30.6 million, for the fiscal year that began Oct. 1.

Meanwhile, January sales tax check to the Ector County Hospital District dropped 5.12 percent from the same month of 2015 to more than $2.58 million.

The City of Midland again saw sales tax revenue barely decline in January, dropping 0.63 percent to more than $4.23 million from the same period of 2016.

Statewide, sales tax figures distributed by the comptroller's office to cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts increased by about 4.9 percent in January compared to the same month last year. The allocations are based on November sales.
