The city of Kerrville received sales tax revenue of $1,305,770.70 this month, which is 3% more than it received in January 2022, according to figures released by the state comptroller’s office.

“The region’s strong business climate and Kerrville being a visitor’s destination continues to fuel our sales tax revenues month after month,” wrote Gilberto Salinas, Kerr Economic Development Corp. executive director, in a Monday email. “Our manufacturing sector is adding jobs and helping increase our region’s GDP. However, we’re cautiously optimistic about 2023, as we see how the Federal Reserve will work interest rates in order to calm inflation down.”
