NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Natchez sales tax collections increased by approximately $148,000 for the 2014-2015 fiscal year, following a six-year, upward trend.

Sales tax collections from October 2014 through September 2015 totaled $5.7 million.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1FCGqle) collections from 2013-2014 were $5.5 million.

Collections for September 2015, which represent sales tax from July because collections are reported two months after the fact, show a 3.3-percent increase from the same month last year.

Collections got off to a strong start for the fiscal year, which began in Oct. 2014, with a 12.4-percent increase compared to the 2013-2014 collections for the same month.
