Polk County Treasurer Tanya K. Fretz released the monthly report showing the Polk County Sales Tax and Polk Road Improvement Tax numbers, both 1%, for October, 2018.

The two taxes generated $124,293 each for a total of $248,586.
To date in 2018 the two taxes have generated a total of $1,394,706.
The October Sales Tax and Road Improvement Tax for 2018 was $970 less than it was for the same month in 2017, but the two taxes are still up $7,012 to date over the same period in 2017.
The decreased amount could be from lower retail sales but is likely due to an accounting oversight in Little Rock and will be corrected in coming months.
