Comptroller Distributes $744.2 Million

Comptroller Glenn Hegar Distributes $744.2 Million in Monthly Sales Tax Revenue to Local Governments.

(AUSTIN) — Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced Wednesday he would send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts $744.2 million in local sales tax allocations for July, 2.6 percent less than in July 2019. The sales made in May by businesses that report tax monthly is the base of these allocations.

The relaxed widespread social distancing requirements across much of the state in May affected the tax, thus year-over-year declines were not as steep as they were last month.
