Rapid City tax collections running behind projections


With sales tax collection running behind projections Rapid City is facing delays in hiring and some cutbacks on non-essential purchases. While tax collections are up by just over 1 percent, the budget is based on an annual increase closer to 2 percent causing concern about the balance of the general fund. Officials are unsure what impact the eventual online tax collection, which was recently approved will have on the budget situation.
