By KAREN DEWITT

“Counties across New York are concerned over reports that sales  tax collections are plummeting, they are asking Governor Cuomo’s tax department for a better explanation.

The New York State Association of Counties, dismayed over a report by the State Comptroller that sales tax collections have slowed to half of what they were last year, are asking Governor Cuomo’s tax department for more information, says the group’s Steven Aquario.

“Are we seeing a trend here?” Aquario says the counties are asking the tax officials.”
