2 More States Report Sept. Tax Increases vs. 2009

1. Texas collected sales tax revenue totalling $1.57 billion in September, up by 6.8 percent from September 2009.  "This increase is significantly larger than recent monthly gains which have been in the 0 to 2 percent range,” said Texas Comptroller Susan Combs. “Sales tax increases were posted across almost all sectors, including oil and gas, construction, manufacturing, wholesale trade, retail trade and restaurants.”

2. Indiana collected $1.16 billion in September--$28.9 million short of what it had expected. Still, total tax collections are $64 million -- or 5.8 percent -- higher than the same period last year. And, in an encouraging sign for the state, sales tax collections, compared with 2009, have increased by 4 percent for the past six months.

the way you posted it seemed very misleading to me as there is no antecedent for "those taxes".

the way your comment is written makes it sound like you are talking about statewide taxes.
