So how much is the city getting in taxes off the sale of alcohol? Can anyone give a good estimate on a per day basis?

After using analytic methodology and comparable city by city revenue graphs, I would say a shitload. Or cash by the wheelbarrow, if you prefer.

Seriously, do you think the city will take in $100,000 in tax revenue? More? I heard that Rite Aid sold $17,000 of beer on the first day.

the city will take in more than $100,000 from one liquor store. Thats something the pastors in corbin blatantly lied about. Funny none of their congregation mind being told lies.

In order for the city to take in $100,000 that much from one liqour store it would need to do $2.5 million in sales. Just saying... I don't for see... that much at one store.

From the newsjournal

http://www.thenewsjournal.net/details.cfm...

"we employ between 15 and 25 people per store. Between danville and lancaster we pay $350,000 a year in taxes to those cities."

According to Taylor, his stores do roughly $25 million in sales annually.

Taylor has 5 stores I believe. Thats 5 million a year per store.

Looks like facts prevail again!

The city must rake in every penny it can get to help satisfy the tremendous debt and pay the expenses to keep up the Arena. The tax revenue from alcohol sales should keep the city solvent assuming there is not another idiotic idea that surfaces like The Arena.

A package store at the South Corbin exit and visible to I-75 will do in excess of nine million a year in gross sales and generate in excess of $475,000 in tax revenue to the city.

Projections are similar but slightly below for a package store on Cumberland Gap Parkway.

If my memory is correct, Danville collected taxes on 22 million dollars of alcohol sales. Considering several ccounties joining Boyle county are wet, Corbin should sell more than Danville. The City of Corbin should receive over a million dollars each year. Looks like those who claimed Frankfort got all the money were, at least, ill informed, or at worst, out right liars. Watch Corbin grow and London decline. We will get to see what economic effect alcohol has on a community.

those were the lies being told by the pastors at the head of concerned citizens of corbin. Even after you tell these people the truth they still deny it simply because their pastor says differently. Thats how small minded and blind they are.
