DiNapoli: Local Sales Tax Collections Fall $1.4 Billion

DiNapoli: Local Sales Tax Collections Fall $1.4 Billion

Sales tax revenue for local governments in July fell 8.2 percent compared to the same period last year, according to New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. Collections for counties and cities in July totaled $1.3 billion, or $116 million less than in July 2019. Although revenue is still down compared to July 2019, the decline is less steep than any month since March, when the COVID-19 pandemic began to affect sales tax collections.

Allowable Levy Growth Factor for Local Governments with a January 1 Fiscal Year

Allowable Levy Growth Factor for Local Governments with a January 1 Fiscal Year

This email is to make you aware that earlier today the Office of the State Comptroller announced that the allowable levy growth factor (tax cap) for those local governments with fiscal years beginning on January 1, 2021, will be 1.56%. This is due to the fact that pursuant to the tax cap law, the allowable levy growth factor is 2% or the CPI, whichever is less. The CPI is currently 1.56%.

Rest assured that given the current economic environment and the financial strain being felt by local governments as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, NYCOM continues to seek ways in which the state can provide you with the additional tools and flexibility you need to navigate these incredibly challenging times.
