Texas Comptroller Susan Combs reported that state sales tax revenue in May was $2.45 billion, up 8.5 percent compared to May 2013.

“Sales tax growth was evident across all major economic sectors,” Combs said. “The growth was led by the retail and wholesale trade sectors, the oil and natural gas mining sector, and the services sector. This marks the 50th consecutive month of increased state sales tax revenues, and brings the fiscal year-to-date growth to 5.4 percent.”

While Pleasanton’s net pay for this period, $508,674 showed an 11% decrease from last year, the city’s year to date payment of $3,707,362 is 33.56% higher than the year to date in 2013 of $2,775,710. All other cities in the county saw an increase, with Lytle bringing in the biggest at 52% with a net payment of $98,823 as compared to the same pay perioed in 2013 of $64,616.

Atascosa County saw a 16.63% increase with a paycheck of $786,540 bringing year to date sales allocation payments to $4,349,886. Frio was the big winner with a 64% increase and a $243,757 allocation for this period..

Sales tax allocation for the county has substantially increased since 2009 when the year’s total was $1,203,323 (see graph below). The 2013 sales tax allocation total for Atascosa County was $7,795,996 for a five year increase of $6,592,673.00.

Sales tax rebates are a major economic indicator for Atascosa County and demonstrate a profitable environment for our communities’ local merchants. These significant rebates also help keep property taxes down. Tax allocations serve as the largest source of revenue for the city’s government supplying the general fund as well as the main operating fund.

Combs will send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts their June local sales tax allocations totaling $621.5 million, up 11.6 percent compared to June 2013.
