    Good morning,

    I have attached a spreadsheet showing the sales tax on video programming revenue received by Buncombe County for fiscal years 2011 through 2017.  The first distribution of revenue in FY18 will not occur until December 15, 2017.

    These funds may be used for general public purposes.  As such, they are deposited into the County’s operating fund as general revenues with the exception of the amount designated by the NC Department of Revenue as PEG Channel Supplemental Funding.  That amount ($27,586.20 in FY17) is used to support the County’s certified PEG channel.

    Thanks,

    Jennifer Durrett, CPA

    Do we do any reporting of video programming? It seems like we used to do something.
