Arkansas – Jonesboro Sets Single Month City Sales Tax Collection Record

Jonesboro had its best city sales and use tax collection month ever in the February report. The city took in $1.952 million during the month, a 5% increase from the same month in 2018, which was also the former highest total ($1.859 million) ever collected.

Sales and use tax collections have a 60-day lag time, meaning the numbers in February represent taxes collected in December, which is typically the highest collection month of the year for the city. Jonesboro serves as a hub in Northeast Arkansas and many in outlying counties shop in the city.
