AUSTIN -- Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said today that state sales tax revenue in December was $2.25 billion, up 3.9 percent compared to December 2012.
Consumer spending in retail trade contributed to the latest gain in state sales tax collections, Combs said. Other sectors such as telecommunications also contributed to the monthly growth, and state sales tax revenue has now increased for 45 consecutive months.
The city of Amarillo brought an increase of more than $5.4 million this year, an increase of just over 6-percent.
The city of Canyon brought in over $184,000, an increase of 5.17-percent.
