​​​AUSTIN – Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced Wednesday that he will send cities, counties, transit systems, and special purpose taxing districts $618 million in local sales tax allocations for June, 1.8 percent less than in June 2015.

These allocations are based on sales made in April by businesses that report tax monthly.

"Energy-centric cities such as Midland, Odessa, and Corpus Christi continued to see decreases in sales tax allocations,” Hegar said. “Meanwhile, other areas of the state helped offset those losses as Austin, El Paso, and Irving saw moderate increases in allocations."
