Taxes and Revenue:
Where the Money Comes From

Texas state government is an enormously complex undertaking, including everything from road construction to professional licensing, from prisons to university research. It’s a $100 billion-a-year enterprise that relies on funding from a variety of sources, including about $50 billion annually that the Texas Comptroller’s office collects from more than 60 separate taxes, fees and assessments.
