SIC Sales Tax Report
Mr. Dubrowski explained that the report was compiled as a result of discussion regarding the
decline in unincorporated sales tax. The report includes data from 2011 through the 2nd quarter
of 2016, for both Peoria and Tazewell Counties. He noted that the one area in which Tazewell
County has been narrowing the gap is in sales of General Merchandise, surpassing Peoria County in
revenues in 2016.
Mr. Dubrowski noted a significant increase in Manufacturers revenues beginning in the 2nd
quarter of 2014 through 2015. Research indicated that in 2013 total manufacturing revenues in
Peoria County totaled $28.9 million, with unincorporated areas accounting for $8.3 million. In
2015, revenue totaled $61.3 million, with an unincorporated portion of $37.2 million. He
commented that revenues are returning to their customary level. He stated that the large rise in
revenues emphasizes the need for information on unincorporated areas from the Department of
Revenue in order to determine an explanation for these anomalies.
The meeting was adjourned by Chairman Fennell at 3:35 p.m.
