Gas tax revenue that Phelps County received in September so far through its County Aid Road Trust (CART) fund distributions was down compared to the same time last year.
Phelps County Commissioners Tuesday morning received a financial report regarding CART funds from the county treasurer’s office.
The county receives distributions from three tax funds administrated by the state — gas, motor vehicle sales and motor vehicle fees.
The amounts received in September are from a previous month’s collection in each of the three tax funds.
The gas tax revenue received in September 2012, which amounted to $52,698.86, was down compared to the amount received in September of last year, which was $53,478.90, a negative difference of about 1.46 percent.
Motor vehicle sales tax revenue decreased to $11,344.06 in September 2012 from $13,314.05 in September 2011, a negative difference of about 14.8 percent.
Revenue from motor vehicle fees declined to $7,405.80 received in September 2012 from $8,583.65 received in September of last year, a negative difference of approximately 13.72 percent.
Year to date, the county has received a total of $462,921.43 in gas tax revenue, $96,689.79 in motor vehicle sales tax revenue and $66,959.23 in motor vehicle fees revenue.
