Sales tax numbers not great for Lubbock

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock sales tax numbers are a mixed bag.  The latest numbers Thursday from the state Comptroller show Lubbock sales tax receipts for September are down 2.48% when compared to September of 2009.  But the good news is that Lubbock sales taxes for 2010 as a whole are up one third of one percent, even as Texas cities on average are collecting less sales tax money. 

By comparison Lubbock County is down more than 5% for September and down nearly 1% for the year. Sales tax numbers are an important indicator of local economic health.
