Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar said that state sales tax revenue totaled $3.18 billion in November. That is 6.2 percent more than in November 2018. November state sales tax growth was led by collections from the wholesale trade, construction, and restaurant sectors, while groups from the oil and gas mining sector declined since last year. Texas realized an increase in the state’s sales tax revenue collections from remote sellers and online marketplace providers, under new collection requirements resulting from the implementation of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision, Wayfair v. South Dakota, and passage of House Bill 1525 during the 86th Texas Legislature. Total sales tax revenue for the three months ending in November 2019 was up 4.8 percent compared to the same period a year ago.
