Sales and Use Tax
Sales and Use Tax Collections for January 2011
through June 2011, by Industrial Classification
For the January 1 through June 30, 2011 period, approximately
$4.2 billion in state and permissive (local) sales & use
tax was collected from 173,367 different sales vendors. The
following table summarizes the sales tax data by type of
industry classification for the indicated six-month period.
The table includes all types of sales and use tax accounts,
including “direct payment” and “consumer use” accounts in
which the appropriate tax is paid directly by the purchaser,
rather than the seller, to the state. Because such purchasers
are included in this table, many industries not typically
involved in making taxable retail sales (such as
manufacturing) are represented.
Out of the 30 classification groups, sales tax collections
ranged from a high of $522.7 million by general merchandise
stores to a low of $1.6 million by mining companies. The
number of accounts per classification ranged from 27,311
miscellaneous store retailers to 30 holding companies.
