AUSTIN — Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar said state sales tax revenue totaled $2.4 billion in March, 7.2 percent more than in March 2017.

“Sales tax revenue rose for almost all major economic sectors, indicating growth in both business and consumer spending,” Hegar said Tuesday. “Receipts from the oil and gas mining, construction and manufacturing sectors, as well as retail trade and restaurants, were up, while receipts from the information sector were slightly down from a year ago.”
