“We had our highest collection of the year,” said auditor Roland Tkach, who recently released the new numbers.
Huron County’s portion of sales tax collected in June was $951,477.
“I’m very pleased with where we (are) for the year, all things considered,” Tkach said. “With three quarters of the year in the books, we’re looking for a strong fourth quarter.”
Vehicle sales were solid in June, checking in at about 24 percent of the overall total.
“June was a great month for car sales,” Tkach said. “Car sales really stepped up to the plate, as far as economic activity.”
Mom-and-Pop stores accounted for 33 percent of the sales tax total in June, while big-box stores made up 24 percent.
“Liquor sales were up 8 percent,” Tkach said.
“This county auditor wants to thank everyone for shopping local,” he added. “It really makes a big difference.”
