SALES AND USE TAX:  Collections for January 1, 2015 through June 30, 2015, by Industrial Classification

The following table represents all 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.

Note: the format of this table is changed from previous periods. Collections from county clerks of court for motor vehicles and watercraft are presented separately within the table.

During the January 1 through June 30, 2015 period, approximately $5.5 billion in state and permissive (local) sales and use tax was collected from 192,399 different sales vendors. Approximately $0.8 billion in state and permissive (local) sales and use tax was collected from county clerks of court for the sales of motor vehicles and watercraft.
