Gulfport Sales Tax Revenue

Q: How much sales tax revenue does Gulfport receive?

A: Last year the city received $352,773, according to the city manager. This comes from restaurants, retail shops, fuel sales at the marina, slip rentals, local gas stations, and any other business operating in the city that collects sales tax. The marina paid $68,000 in sales tax; unfortunately, the city does not have figures on how much private businessese collects and contributes.
