Counting the pennies

Posted By on Thu, May 31, 2007 at 2:23 PM

The D-G led the newspaper today with the news that the Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau has figured out, after 30 years, how to keep track of payments of the hamburger tax by food sellers required to collect it.

An agitated Bill Valentine (but I'm being redundant), the Arkansas Travelers' major domo, asked the Arkansas Blog how come no one had asked to see the current list of reported delinquencies. The Travs have been getting hammered for failure to pay the tax on concessions until 2005. Some confusion exists on when concessions became subject to the tax.

We were pleased to be able to tell Ump Valentine that we had already requested that list. And you may view the spread sheet here. Understand that it may include amounts now paid and some may dispute the figures. But this is the public record generated for the meeting yesterday.
