BELL COUNTY - The November sales tax payments distributed by the Texas comptroller’s office offered good news for Central Texas cities.

None of the municipalities in Bell County saw decreases compared to the November 2013 payments and only one saw a decrease in its year-to-date payments.

Statewide, the sales tax revenue was $2.41 billion — up 12.9 percent compared to November 2013 — with $723.1 million distributed to local governments across the state, according to a report released by the office of Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts Susan Combs.
