Sales tax distributions represent the distribution of the 1% local option sales tax (LOST) countywide from each of the commodity sectors. Commodity sectors are made up of NAICS industries. Distributions are lagged by one month, so April distributions come from March business sales.

Data can be filtered by distribution month, rural/urban counties, Regional Commission region, county, or commodity sector. Hover over the line graph and bar chart to see data values associated with the county. Sort the table columns by selecting the column headers. Search for a particular county by selecting the magnifying glass icon on the County column header and typing the county name into the search box. Then select the green check mark to save your selection. To remove a selection, click the small “X” next to your selection's name in the gray bar above the visualizations.
