Local governments collecting more in sales taxes

Fredericksburg-area local governments collected about $3 million in revenue from sales taxes in February, the best performance for that month since 2006.

Localities receive one-fifth of Virginia sales taxes collected. The $3 million collected from February sales in the region was up 10 percent from February 2011, a sign of a strengthening economy.

The data include Fredericksburg and Caroline, King George, Stafford and Spotsylvania counties. Click here for the data, which the Virginia Department of Taxation released Monday.
