Budget tight next year, town predicts
Starting in 2009, revenue to the town of Tunica from gaming taxes has declined by nearly $1 million, a 30 percent reduction over the course of five budget years.
Town officials have slotted $2.25 million into revenue projections for the coming year, down from $3.2 million for the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 2009.
In the same period, however, sales taxes collected in the town of Tunica and rebated from the state have increased slightly and are on target to just miss $500,000 collected in FY 2013, depending on sales through the end of September.
