Texas’ sales tax revenue is up for September 2013.

Texas Comptroller Susan Combs announced Wednesday that state sales tax revenue in September was $2.01 billion, up 2.7 percent from September 2012.

Combs has sent cities, counties, transit systems, and special purpose taxing districts sales tax allocations totaling $579.8 million, a 5.2 percent increase from one year ago.

“Growth was led by collections from the construction, telecommunications, and retail sectors,” said Combs. “State sales tax revenue has now increased for 42 consecutive months.”

The City of Lubbock’s payment from the state for sales taxes collected in September 2013 total just over five million dollars, a 4.98 percent increase from the same time last year. So far, the City of Lubbock has collected $49.48 million this year, a 7.7 percent increase over last year.

Shallowater’s sales tax payment is $9,422, a 40 percent increase over September 2012. Tahoka’s payment is $13,162, up 13.9 percent, Crosbyton’s payment is $9,579, up 29.6 percent, and Abernathy has received $14,974, up 10.8 percent over the same time last year.

Not all areas across the South Plains posted increases.

Brownfield’s payment from the state is $102,692, down 14.7 percent from September 2012; Paducah’s payment is $8,019, down 64.6 percent; and Plainview’s payment is nearly $298,000, down 4.7 percent from September 2012.
