State sales tax revenue in November was $2.41 billion, up 2.8 percent compared to November 2012, according to Texas Comptroller Susan Combs.
“State sales tax revenue continues to grow at a moderate pace as expected,” Combs said. “Sales tax collections have increased for 44 consecutive months. Revenue from sectors such as wholesale trade, services industries and restaurants contributed to the most recent increase.”
