AUSTIN — Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar said today that state sales tax revenue in December was $2.35 billion, up 4.3 percent compared to December 2013.
“Although moderating slightly, growth in sales tax revenues continues to be seen across all economic sectors,” Hegar said. “Collections from the oil and natural-gas, construction, manufacturing, and services sectors rose, while remittances due to consumer spending in the retail trade and restaurant sectors also grew.”
In this payment period, Cuero showed a 19.27 percent decrease over the same period last year, while Nordheim had a 14.14 percent increase and Yorktown had a 34.01 percent increase.
Cuero has now received $215,535 from its sales tax rebate which compares to $266,999 a year ago. Nordheim’s checks have totaled $3,169 compared to $2,777 a year ago. Yorktown’s checks have totaled $39,679 compared to $29,608 a year ago.
