Sales use and tax still up from last year



(AUSTIN) — Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said today that state sales tax revenue in November was $2.66 billion, up 10.7 percent compared to November 2013.

“The growth in sales tax collections was fueled by increased remittances from both business and consumer driven sectors,” Combs said. “The gains were led by oil and natural gas-related sectors, while collections from retail trade and restaurants also rose strongly.”

Combs will send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts their December local sales tax allocations totaling $645.9 million, up 11.4 percent compared to December 2013.

Atascosa County’s amount of $803,959.97 still shows an increase from last year, same time as well as from last month’s report of $760,550.48.
