THE WOODLANDS - The Woodlands experienced a boom in sales tax revenue in February allocations — a 12.5 percent increase from February 2012.

The Woodlands' sales tax revenue increased from $4.6 million to $5.2 million year-over-year in February. The nearly $600,000 increase comes after the township's sales tax revenue rose less than a percent in January allocations compared to January 2012 numbers.

Sales tax revenue for other south Montgomery County entities is also on the rise. Allocations rose 8 percent, about $53,000, in February year-over-year in Shenandoah while they rose 3 percent in Oak Ridge North, about $7,000.

Sales tax allocations from February come from sales made during the previous December while January allocations are based on November sales.
