Texas Comptroller Susan Combs announced Aug. 6 that state sales tax revenue in July was $2.34 billion, up 6.3 percent compared to July 2013.
“The growth in sales tax revenues reflected strength in both business and consumer spending,” Combs said. “The increase was led by remittances from the construction, services, and oil and natural gas-related sectors, as well as from retail trade and restaurants. Fiscal year-to-date, state sales tax collections are now up 5.3 percent.”
