August, 12 2013
New York (WENY) New York State Comptroller says sales tax revenue grew this year, but not in areas that need it most. Local Sales tax money went up 5.7 percent so far this year compared to 2013. But most of that growth was realized downstate.
     
New York city and Long Island saw a jump is sales tax. Dinappoli believes due in part because of super storm sandy. But upstate like here in the southern tier, collections declined by 3.3 percent
     
Chemung went down 6.4 percent, Steuben County fell 3.8 percent and Schuyler County fell 3.4 percent. The problem is that this overall pattern could indicate a slowing in the upstate economy.
