Polk County Treasurer Tanya K. Fretz released the April 2020 Sales Tax General and Road Improvement Sales Tax Report recently. The report reflects collections for March and a year-to-date summary, as well as a comparison for the same period in 2019.
Both taxes are 1% on retail sales and the road tax money can only be used for county roads and bridges in the county.
The taxes each amounted to $123,801.00, a $2,308.00 decrease compared to the same period in 2019.
So far this year the two taxes have generated $531,296.00 each which is an increase of $20,337.00 each compared to the same period in 2019.
