The Miller Park stadium district received just over $1.85 million in sales-tax collections from December 2009, 18% below the same time period a year ago, new figures show.
For all of 2009, the district finished the year 9.45% behind 2008's sales-tax collection amount. The district collected $24.16 million in 2009; in 2008, $26.68 million was collected....the bottom line is that the district will not be able to retire the tax in 2014, as had been hoped. The new sunset year could be as late as 2018.
What's that phrase? "Tax Hell"....yah.
