Almost all of the cities in Rockwall County received an early Christmas present as they came to the end of their fiscal years by recording substantial boosts in the amount of sales tax revenue they collected during the past year, according to a report issued Wednesday by Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar.
The report represents each city's portion of sales taxes collected at local businesses in October, which were reported to the Comptroller's office in November. The report was the last to be issued for the 2020/2021 fiscal year.
The Comptroller’s Office tracks 12-month sales totals between Nov. 1 and Oct. 31 annually, while cities track the sales between Oct. 1 and Sept. 30.
• Rockwall reported receiving $2.64 million in sales tax rebates revenue this month, representing a 20.66% gain from December 2020. For the fiscal year, Rockwall took in $32 million, an increase of 22.81%from the same point last year.
