The article reports on the decrease in projections on sales tax growth for 2006 in Nassau County, New York. The forecast was made due to the revenue collection in 2005 which showed less-than-expected growth. The reason for the slow growth of sales tax is the slowing local housing market, fewer home equity refinancing and remodeling and less home renovations.
