Cumberland Commissioners Concerned With Sales Tax Numbers

Cumberland County Commissioners received some unfortunate news this week in regards to sales taxes.

Early numbers from December 2017 show the county bringing in $821,000 in sales tax receipts against a projected $927,000. That’s over $100,000 below budget.

Year-to-date the county is down $175,000 to budget, but 4th District Commissioners Allen Foster said the county will be checking to see if there was an issue with the reported number.
