Nevada sales up 4.2 percent in September

Taxable sales in Nevada rose 4.2 percent in September over the same month last year, with most major sectors reporting increases.

A report Thursday by the Department of Taxation says Nevada merchants sold $3.7 billion in goods in September, on which the state collected nearly $293 million in gross sales and use taxes.

In southern Nevada's Clark County, sales rose 4.9 percent, while Washoe County reported an increase of 9.1 percent.

Big gains were noted in the sale of vehicles and parts, clothing and accessories, construction and accommodations.

The report comes a day before an independent panel of business leaders meets to make final projections on how much revenue Nevada will take in over the next two years. Projections by the Economic Forum are used to build the state budget.
