Comptroller Susan Combs Distributes $580 Million in Monthly Sales Tax Revenue to Local Governments

(AUSTIN) — Texas Comptroller Susan Combs announced today that state sales tax revenue in September was $2.01 billion, up 2.7 percent compared to September 2012.    

“State sales tax revenue collections continued to grow at a moderate pace,” Combs said. “Growth was led by collections from the construction, telecommunications and retail sectors. State sales tax revenue has now increased for 42 consecutive months.”

Combs will send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts their October local sales tax allocations totaling $579.8 million, up 5.2 percent compared to October 2012.
