More 2007 Retail Sales Data

The chart below details the broad retail categories for which retail sales tax data is collected. It is worth noting that the data only reflects those goods and services that are liable for sales tax. Food and grocery sales and prescription medicines are two important examples of goods that do not incur sales tax.
  • The largest retail sales category is motor vehicles, with sales of over $600 million across the county in 2007.

  • Aside from Other retail stores, the next largest categories are General Merchandise stores (such as Macy's, Target etc) and Eating & Drinking Places.
