AUSTIN — Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar today said state sales tax revenue totaled $2.8 billion in April, 3 percent more than in April 2018.
“State sales tax revenue continued to grow, but at a modest pace compared to recent months,” Hegar said. “Increased sales tax collections were mostly from the construction and services sectors, while collections from retail trade saw a moderate decline.”
Total sales tax revenue for the three months ending in April 2019 was up 6.2 percent compared to the same period a year ago. Sales tax is the largest source of state funding for the state budget, accounting for 57 percent of all tax collections.
