Archbold Village Council learned municipal income tax collections for June were up about 382.8% over the same month in 2015.
The information was presented to council during its Monday, July 11 meeting.
Gross collections for June were $286,951.85, up from June 2015, when collections were $59,430.91.
Year-to-date collections for 2016 are nearly $2.8 million, compared to almost $2.1 million for the same period in 2015, which represents an increase of about 33.8%.
Donna Dettling, village administrator, said the increase possibly results from some changes in state law regarding municipal income taxes.
She said Pat Dominique, village income tax commissioner, told her the increase might be an anomaly.
“It’s still fun to see for half a year,” said Vaughn Bentz, councilman.
