State Revenue and Spending

Texas state government is an enormously complex undertaking. The state takes in over $250 billion a year in revenue coming from over 60 different taxes, fees and assessments. Most of that money goes out to pay for services and activities such as road construction, professional licensing, prisons and university research.
