Comptroller Susan Combs Distributes $603 Million in Monthly Sales Tax Revenue to Local Governments

(AUSTIN) — Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said today that state sales tax revenue in June was $2.24 billion, up 3.7 percent compared to June 2013.

"Sales tax revenues continue to grow at a moderate pace," Combs said. "The increase was led by remittances from the wholesale trade, services, and restaurant sectors. Fiscal year-to-date collections have now grown by 5.2 percent."

Combs will send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts their July local sales tax allocations totaling $602.5 million, up 4.2 percent compared to July 2013.
