Sales tax revenue is up for the year at Houston.

Revenue from sales taxes collected in Texas County showed an impressive gain during the latest period, according to a new report.

Revenue from three half-cent sales taxes totaled about $72,600 each. That’s an increase of about 13 percent or $8,600 each from the same period a year ago.

For the first four months of the year, more than $297,000 was collected from each. That’s up slightly from a year ago.

Merchants collect three half-cent sales taxes: general revenue, debt repayment on the county justice center and maintenance.

The reports are considered a good barometer of economic development.
