Sales tax revenue in the state of Texas for August was $2.39 billion, up 2.1 percent compared to August 2012, according to a press release from Texas Comptroller Susan Combs.

“The latest monthly gains were led by sectors such as construction and the restaurant industry,” Combs said. “For the recently ended fiscal year, state sales tax revenue totaled $25.8 billion, an increase of 7.2 percent from fiscal 2012. Both business and consumer spending contributed to the gains for the year.”
