Comptroller distributes $622 million statewide



(AUSTIN) — Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said today that state sales tax revenue in September was $2.17 billion, up 7.9 percent compared to September 2013.

“Significant growth in sales tax revenues occurred across all major economic sectors, reflecting strength in both business and consumer spending,” Combs said. “The gains were led by remittances from the oil and natural gas-related and manufacturing sectors, as well as from restaurants and retail trade.”

Combs will send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts their October local sales tax allocations totaling $621.7 million, up 7.2 percent compared to October 2013.
