Delinquent taxes are no answer to sales tax question

By Ned Seaton

Q: I wonder: If someone added up all the delinquent property taxes that were published in the Mercury recently and added up the tax collected for calendar year 2011 under the Riley County half-cent sales tax, which would be the larger amount? The current delinquent sales taxes or one year’s worth of half-cent sales tax revenue? Are the Riley County Commission and the Manhattan City Commission trying to renew a sales tax when an equal or greater amount of tax dollars are going uncollected within the county?
