Local Sales Tax Collections Are Up

State Comptroller DiNapoli reported local sales tax collections in New York State amounted to $17.5 billion in 2018, a 5.3 percent increase over the previous calendar year and the third consecutive year that growth in collections improved.

The trend appears statewide: Every region’s annual growth rate increased in each of the last three years with the exception of the Finger Lakes, which slowed from 4.9 percent in 2017 to 3.7 percent in 2018. However, year-over-year growth has been particularly noticeable in the other upstate regions, especially the Southern Tier and Central New York.
