Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said Wednesday that state sales tax revenue in November was $2.34 billion, representing a 13.1 percent increase over November 2011.

“Gains across major sectors boosted state sales tax revenue,” Combs said in a statement. “Collections were strong in sectors such as retail trade, manufacturing, oil and natural gas, construction and telecommunications.”

Combs will send December sales tax allocations totaling $552 million to cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts, which represents a 15.5 percent increase since December 2011.

Local numbers slightly outpaced the state average.

Killeen had a net payment of just more than $1.5 million in December, up 14.4 percent from more than $1.3 million in December 2011. Harker Heights went from $372,809 in December 2011 to $418,779.15, representing a 12.33 percent increase. Copperas Cove showed the most significant increase, with a net payment in December of $314,416, a 20.38 percent increase over December 2011.

The figures represent October sales.
