Texas December Sales Tax Allocations
Texas Comptroller Susan Combs has allocated more than $645 million in monthly sales tax revenue to local governments throughout Texas for the month of December.
The allocations come from November’s sales tax revenue which was $2.66 billion, 10 percent higher than November 2013. Cities received the bulk of the allocations at $417 million with transit systems receiving $147 million, counties $42 million and special purpose taxing districts receiving $39 million.
Lubbock was the 14th highest paid city receiving more than $5.37 million. Other West Texas cities include: Amarillo at $5.8 million, Midland at $5.65 million and Odessa at $3.9 million.
To date, Lubbock has received $59.7 million in sales tax revenue allocations this year. That reflects a five percent growth from last year.
