Comptroller Susan Combs Distributes $578 Million in Monthly Sales Tax Revenue to Local Governments

(AUSTIN) — Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said today that state sales tax revenue in June was $2.17 billion, up 9.1 percent compared to June 2012.

“Growth in sales tax receipts was led by business sectors such as manufacturing and construction,” Combs said. “Remittances from the oil and natural gas industry remain strong, while sales tax revenue was also notable for restaurants – a consumer sector.”

Combs will send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts their July local sales tax allocations totaling $578.3 million, up 8.1 percent compared to July 2012.
