Onondaga County Receives Latest Sales Tax Payment; Down $29 Million on the Year

Payment totals $ 22,648,988

Syracuse, N.Y. – Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon announced that Onondaga County was in receipt of the latest sales tax payment. The payment represents a payment for the months of July and August and totaled $22,648,988 which reflects a $3,261,866 decrease year over year. Onondaga County is now down over $29 million for the 2020 budget.

County Executive McMahon said, “The devastating economic consequences of this pandemic cannot be overstated. Each sales tax payment reinforces that this will be at least a two to three year problem for our community. With help from the federal government in limbo, we have been forced to consider layoffs, cuts to services, and potentially even more draconian measures.”

The next sales tax payment is expected later this month, though subject to change.
