Comptroller Distributes Sales Tax Revenue

Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said today that state sales tax revenue in April was $2.27 billion, up 5.6 percent compared to April 2013.

"Growth in sales tax revenue was spurred by increases in the telecommunications sector and services sector,” Combs said. “Increased business spending in the wholesale trade sector also contributed to the latest monthly gain. This marks 49 consecutive months of growth in sales tax collections.”

Combs will send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts their May local sales tax allocations totaling $716 million, up 7.1 percent compared to May 2013.

The sales tax figures represent monthly sales made in March as well as January, February and March sales by businesses that report tax quarterly.
