Income Tax Collections Increase For 2012

January 18, 2013

Last year, the city collected $3.99 million in income taxes, which eclipsed the $3.74 million it hauled in during 2011. The $3.99 million also surpassed the $3.60 million it collected in 2009 and the $3.9 million it collected in 2010.

“I’m glad we are up,” St. Marys Mayor Pat McGowan told The Evening Leader. “That’s good, but our expenses have been up as far as operations and we are looking at those now.”
