State Sales Tax Revenue Up From Last Year

AUSTIN (AP) – Comptroller Susan Combs says sales tax revenue for last month rose 9.7 percent in Texas compared to a year ago.

Combs on Wednesday reported the February sales tax figure was $1.75 billion.

She says sales tax revenues have improved for the last 11 months, reflecting increased activity in almost all major economic sectors.

Combs reports that tax collections were up in the oil and gas industry, manufacturing and retail trade.

    With gas prices reaching new highs, that should fall again, pretty fast, as people have less disposable income.

      You pay sales tax on gas too Rick.
