A key measure of sales activity in the Grand Valley continues to increase, although the latest numbers don’t yet reflect the full effects of the coronavirus outbreak.
The City of Grand Junction and Mesa County both reported year-over-year increases in sales tax collections in March. March reports reflect February sales.
The city collected a total of more than $3.9 million in sales and use tax collections in March, an increase of more than $64,000 and 1.7 percent over the same month last year. City sales tax collections increased 2.1 percent. Use tax collections, a far smaller and more volatile source of revenue, dropped 33.3 percent.
