Recent reports say Nassau County is falling short of sales tax revenue ["Deficit warning," News, July 30].

When I retired in 2008, my property taxes were $10,065. Last year, the bill was up to $13,055. Therefore, I had $3,000 less to spend to generate sales tax revenue for the county.

As the school taxes continue to rise, the sales tax revenue will continue to fall.
