Elsewhere in Smith County, sales taxes in November dropped 45 percent in Winona,  40.3 percent in Troup, 32.1 percent in Arp, 21 percent in Whitehouse and 14 percent in Bullard, according to the comptroller's office. The only Smith County city other than Tyler to post gains was Noonday, up 23 percent for the month.

The City of Longview collected $3.04 million in November, representing a 14.3 percent increase compared to November 2012. Sales tax revenue continued to fall in Kilgore, this time 5.7 percent for the month. Meanwhile, rebates are up 53.4 percent in Lakeport, which approved off-premise beer and wine sales one year ago.
