Taxable sales for January mirrored the poor snow conditions of the season’s start and was just shy of $3.5 million. We actually had the lowest month of receipts in recent history (my data only goes back 6 years).

Let’s hope, certainly for our retail and hospitality industry, that the improved snow conditions will also improve the tax receipts for February. For more data and graphs, see the Taxable Sales in Valley County.
