AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said Wednesday that state sales tax revenue in June was $2.17 billion, up 9.1 percent compared to June 2012.

“Growth in sales tax receipts was led by business sectors such as manufacturing and construction,” Combs said. “Remittances from the oil and natural gas industry remain strong, while sales tax revenue was also notable for restaurants – a consumer sector.”

Combs will send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts their July local sales tax allocations totaling $578.3 million, up 8.1 percent compared to July 2012.

As a whole, sales tax returns for all Ellis County municipalities rose by 3.9 percent for spending in June over June the previous year.
