CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Taxable sales in Nevada jumped 9.3 percent in January over the same month a year ago, with several sectors posting big gains.

The Department of Taxation Tuesday reports merchants sold $3.4 billion in goods during the month, on which the state collected $272 million in gross sales and use taxes.

Sales of motor vehicles and parts were up nearly 15 percent over January 2012, while construction trades saw an 83 percent increase.

Other gains were realized in sales at general merchandise stores, up 13 percent; accommodations, up 26 percent; and clothing and accessories, 11 percent.

For the fiscal year that began July 1, the portion of taxes that go to fund state government are about 1.2 percent or $6.6 million below projections made late last year by the Economic Forum.
