Tax Commissioner Reports 4% Growth in 3rd Quarter Taxable Sales & Purchases

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact:  Jackie Landis,  Administrative Assistant, 701.328.2770; Kathryn Strombeck, Research Analyst, 701.328.3402


BISMARCK, N.D. – Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger announced today that North Dakota’s taxable sales and purchases for the third quarter of 2019 are up 4% compared to 2018. Taxable sales and purchases for July, August and September of 2019 were $5.852 billion, a 4% increase over those months in 2018.

“We are pleased to report consistent growth in year-over-year taxable sales and purchases in the third quarter 2019 continuing the trend we have experienced the past ten quarters,” Rauschenberger said.  “With fluctuating   commodity prices, it is significant that the state has been able to post solid taxable sales and purchases growth each quarter for more than two years.”

Rauschenberger also pointed out that the report indicated strong growth in the all-important retail trade sector, which grew a healthy 6.3%.   Retail sales increased by $103 million in the third quarter, contributing the most of any sector to the overall increase in taxable sales and purchases for the third quarter.  A portion of the retail trade growth can be attributed to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair allowing the collection of state and local sales and use taxes from remote sellers.

Of the 50 largest cities in North Dakota, the highest percent increases for the third quarter of 2019 (compared to the third quarter of 2018) were as follows:

  • Cavalier – Increase of 44.1%
  • Hillsboro – Increase of 33.1%
  • Casselton – Increase of 30.3%
  • Beach – Increase of 20.5%
  • Rolla - Increase of 18.2%

Of the four cities with the largest population in North Dakota, all posted third quarter increases, with Bismarck’s growth the largest at 4.6% and Grand Forks the smallest, at .11%.

Counties with the highest percent increases for the third quarter of 2019 (compared to the third quarter of 2018) were as follows:

  • Renville – Increase of 36.6%
  • Grant – Increase of 35.6%
  • Pembina – Increase of 27.5%
  • McHenry – Increase of 26.7%
  • Nelson – Increase of 26.3%
