A.P. State sales tax data released
AUSTIN - Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced he will send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts $211.7 million in local sales tax allocations for March, 6.1 percent more than in March 2018.
The City of Aransas Pass, however, will receive a decrease of a little more than 18 percent for the month, and little more than 22 percent for the year. The downward trend began in December, but local officials recognize in 2018, the City was recovering from Hurricane Harvey, and sales of rebuilding supplies was a big contribution to that sales tax increase.
The news is better for the neighboring City of Ingleside as it will receive an increase of more than 22 percent for the month, and an overall increase of more than 12 percent, year to date. Ingleside on the Bay will receive an increase of more than six percent for the month, but an overall increase of almost 67 percent year-to-date.
These allocations are based on sales made in January by businesses that report tax monthly.
