Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said today that state sales tax revenue in October was $2.03 billion, up 8.2 percent compared to October 2011.
“The state’s growth in sales tax revenue continues to be led by collections from the oil and natural gas-related sectors,” said Combs. “We also saw strong consumer spending drive gains in retail trade and the restaurant sector as well.”
Combs will send November local sales tax allocations totaling $611.5 million to cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts, up 5.4 percent compared to November 2011.
