March Sales Tax Revenue (MP3)
State sales tax revenue totaled $2.24 billion in March — 3 percent more than in March 2016. This net growth represents mixed performances by major industry sectors, however. Manufacturing, wholesale trade and information sectors increased, while receipts from construction, retail trade and restaurants declined from last year’s levels.
