Joplin Tax Proceeds Down


So far this year sales tax proceeds are either staying steady or going up in jasper and newton counties, but in Joplin numbers are down.

This time last year Joplin's tax receipts were more than $8.7 million dollars. This year, they're just nearly $8.4 million. City officials say the revenue decrease is caused by a decrease in home repairs since the 2011 tornado.
