NEWPORT—Cocke County’s sales tax monies for the current fiscal year remain on track to top the county’s previous all-time record set in 2011-2012.

Since July 1, 2013, the beginning of the current fiscal year, the county has received $4,008,505.75 in sales tax revenue. For the same period in 2011-2012, the county received $3,836,521.68, according to Cocke County Finance Director Anne Bryant-Hurst.

“Of course, anything can happen between now and June 30, 2014, the end of this fiscal year,” she cautioned.
