WPCNR QUILL & EYESHADE. From the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance. January 16, 2014:

December shoppers brought White Plains a refreshing $965,000 dollar increase in sales tax receipts in December, bringing the city total for the first six months of the city fiscal year to $25.6 Million, an increase of 4% over July-December, 2012.

Should the city earn the same sales tax receipts as they did in 2013 for the next six months the city is on target to hit $51 Million in receipts, $2 million more  (about 2.2% more) sales tax dollars than fiscal 2012-13.

Westchester County sales tax receipts ended the county fiscal year of 2013 with a strong 6.2% increase $28.5 Million more over 2013 ($488 Million to $459.6 Million).
