Sales Tax Revenue Slump Continues

Erie County Comptroller Stefan I. Mychajliw is reporting January 2013 - May 2013 sales tax revenue for Erie County to be $170,007,216. That represents year-to-date sales tax revenue growth of only 2.28%.  The actual sales tax growth for the first five months of the year falls far short of the administration’s overly optimistic and aggressive projection of 3.73% annual growth

Erie County Comptroller Stefan Iwan Mychajliw is the son of Polish and Ukrainian immigrants, the youngest of seven children, who grew up in blue-collar beginnings near the corner of William and Fillmore on the East Side of Buffalo.

The people of Erie County first elected Mychajliw Erie County Comptroller on November 6th, 2012. He is the proud father of eight-year-old Mia Theresa Mychajliw, a third-grade student.
