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.
