Tax revenues in Columbiana County better than expected

Updated:

COLUMBIANA COUNTY, Ohio - Tax revenues for Columbiana County were better than expected last year and county leaders say it is in part to two new activities.

At a budget commission meeting on Monday, Auditor Nancy Milliken said sales tax revenues were more than one-million dollars above projections.

The auditor says a contributing factor was oil and gas development and the influx of people connected to the shale activity.

"I think the restaurants are busier, the hardwares are busier. Farmers buy something they're usually exempt from the tax, so i think we've seen an increase there with the increased number of people that have come into the county," said Nancy Milliken, Columbiana County Auditor.

Milliken says another factor was two payments from Ohio's new casino tax totaling about $250,000, which helped the county end the year with a $1.4 million dollar carryover.

The projected budget for 2013 is over $19 million dollars.
