(AUSTIN) — Texas Comptroller Susan Combs recently announced that state sales tax revenue in November was $2.34 billion, up 13.1 percent compared to November 2011.
“Gains across major sectors boosted state sales tax revenue,” Combs said. “Collections were strong in sectors such as retail trade, manufacturing, oil and natural gas, construction and telecommunications.”
Combs will send December local sales tax allocations totaling $552 million to cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts, up 15.5 percent compared to December 2011.
The sales tax figures represent October sales reported by monthly tax filers.
