LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada taxable sales rose 7.3 percent in April over the same month last year, signaling improved consumer confidence as the Silver State continues a long climb out of recession.

The Department of Taxation reports Nevada merchants sold $3.8 billion in goods in April, with big gains realized in construction, vehicles and accommodations.

The $293 million in overall taxes collected was up 7.7 percent. The portion that goes to the state general fund totaled $74 million, an increase of more than 7 percent compared with April 2012.

Sales in Clark County rose 3.7 percent, while Washoe County in northern Nevada saw an increase of 8.7 percent.

In all, the report released Wednesday says 13 of Nevada's 17 counties reported gains in taxable sales in April.
