Texas- Sales, use tax allocations not yet impacted by COVID-19 pandemic

On April 8, Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced he would send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts $701.8 million in local sales tax allocations for April. That’s .05% less than April 2019. These allocations are made in February by businesses that report tax monthly.

The COVID-19 pandemic seems to not have had much of any impact in sales and use tax allocations for April for Atascosa County and its cities.

Next month’s allocations, which will mostly reflect sales made in March, will begin to show the impact of pandemic-related business shutdowns. The agency, therefore, expects local allocations in May to be lower, and June allocations will likely deteriorate further.
