Huron County sales tax collection rebounded with a strong June.

The county’s portion of sales tax collected was $946,600, which makes the overall total about 9 percent more than the estimate for the year to this point.

“I’m very pleased,” auditor Roland Tkach said. “We’re right on track. I really appreciate everyone spending their money in Huron County. It makes a huge difference.”

Leading the way in June were vehicle sales, which accounted for 25 percent of the overall total.

“The car sales number is eye-catching,” Tkach said. “June was a great month for car sales.”

Mom-and-Pop stores were at 30 percent of the total, while big-box stores were at 26 percent. Liquor sales were even when compared to 2018.

“We’ll continue to monitor the situation going forward into the last quarter of pay-ins,” Tkach said.

Sales tax makes up about 60 to 65 percent of the county’s general fund revenue.
