In total, the city brought in about $2.73 million in sales tax revenue, according to data released in October by the Texas State Comptroller's Office.
This is the fourth month in a row in which the city has reported double-digit year-over-year sales tax growth, it said.
City officials initially predicted a decrease in revenue each month from March through July between 7-10%. Instead, the city saw a 1.91% year-over-year revenue increase in March and a 0.69% year-over-year revenue increase in April, even as Williamson County restricted movement with a “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order.
The city also saw a 11.63% increase in May, a 22.88% increase in June and a 10.75% increase in July, data shows.
Sales tax revenue funds about 8.4% of the city’s budget.
