Springfield Sales Tax Revenue Up

The City of Springfield’s sales tax revenues from the Missouri Department of Revenue are up compared to the city’s budget.

The check from the state totaled $4,387,170 compared to a budgeted amount of $4,151,564, a difference of 5.68 percent. Revenue compared to the budget is up just over 2 percent for the year.
