According to figures released by Texas Comptroller Susan Combs in early July, June state sales tax revenue was $2.17 billion, up 9.1 percent compared to June 2012. Combs will send June local sales tax allocations totaling $556.8 million to cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts, up 8.3 percent compared to June 2012.

The city of Mexia received $198,458 this period, down .66 of a percent from the $199,885 reported sent in this month in 2012.

Year-to-date, Mexia has received $1,500,682, up 2.17 percent from the $1,468,751 year-to-date total 12 months ago.
