CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Taxable sales in Nevada jumped nearly 8 percent in March over the same month a year ago, with big gains noted in the state's core tourism industries.

A report Thursday by the Department of Taxation shows Nevada merchants sole $4.4 billion in taxable goods during the month.

Sales in Clark County shot up 12 percent, while Washoe County posted gains of 11.4 percent.

Ten of Nevada's 17 counties reported increased sales activity, on which the state collected $344.7 million in gross sales and use taxes.

The report shows accommodations rose more than 38 percent, while sales at bars and restaurants were up nearly 10 percent. Both categories are key indicators of Nevada's vital tourism sector.
