Pasadena, South Houston Get Good Monthly Sales Tax Revenue Report

The most recent sales tax revenue report was good news for some cities in the Pasadena area.

Released by the Texas Comptroller’s Office on November 12, the September income report showed Pasadena and South Houston with double-digit annual gains from this month of last year.

The monthly reports come out six weeks after the fact.

Pasadena took in $ 3.66 million in September, up from $ 3.32 million in the same month in 2020.

The difference of $ 337,048 was a 10 percent increase over last year’s figure.

Pasadena’s tax figures also reflect well compared to September 2019, which was before the global economy was strangled by the pandemic.

In September 2019, Pasadena generated $ 3.29 million through sales tax, which is $ 360,565 less than this year’s $ 3.66 million.

La Porte broke the $ 1 million hurdle for the third time in four months in September, grossing $ 1.12 million, while the corresponding month in 2020 saw $ 1.1 million enter. This variance of $ 17,094.73 corresponds to an improvement of 1.5%.

La Porte’s performance in this month’s report topped its 2019 counterpart by $ 41,680. That month, $ 1.08 million was received in sales tax.

Deer Park’s total for the month of this year was $ 895,405, up $ 10,889, or 1.23%, from the amount raised in September 2020.

But September’s performance was lower than this month of 2019, when the total hit $ 962,728.

South Houston recorded a 20.6% year-over-year gain.

The city collected $ 384,720 in sales taxes in September, an increase of $ 65,741 from the same month in 2019, when $ 318,979 was donated. The city’s total for September 2019 was $ 283,768.

As for small towns, Morgan’s Point had a disappointing September, with sales tax revenue falling 22.2% from the same month last year.

The total for 2021 was $ 69,880, which is $ 19,903 less than the amount of $ 89,783 in 2020.

Shoreacres saw its September tax revenue increase 4.12% year-on-year. This September, $ 15,574 entered, compared to $ 14,957 for the month of 2020.

The October sales tax report is expected to be released in mid-December.
