Taxable Sales Dropped Slightly In Third Quarter

Sonora, CA — When it comes to the economy, Tuolumne County was identical to the state of California when it comes to third quarter taxable sales.

Both saw a decrease of 2.7 percent compared to the same period last year.

“It is pretty much what we expected,” says Larry Cope, Tuolumne County Economic Development Director. “We’re hoping that after the first of the year when we start seeing some of the Christmas numbers, we will see a little bit of a gain.”

Calaveras County saw a 4.8 percent decrease during the same period. Modoc County saw the largest increase in taxable sales at 15.8 percent, while Sierra County reported the largest decrease (-14.8 percent).

Notable counties like Los Angeles saw a decrease of 1.7 percent, Sacramento County lost 3.7 percent and San Francisco County reported an increase of 5.3 percent.
