Missouri – Cape County Sales Tax Revenue Flat With Only Slight Increase Over Last Year

Cape Girardeau County Treasurer Roger Hudson says the good news is the county’s sales tax revenue hasn’t decreased from where it was this time last year.

The bad news, though, is it hasn’t increased either. In fact, it’s almost exactly where it was a year ago.

Hudson provides updated tax revenue data to the Cape Girardeau County Commission every month and reported October’s numbers at Thursday’s meeting of the commissioners.

So far this year, Cape Girardeau County has received $6,223,878.32 from it’s half-cent sales tax, just $287.87 more than it had received by this time last year when the tax had generated $6,223.590.45. That’s an increase of 0.005%.
