North Carolina collected $3.6 billion in sales and gross receipt taxes during the 2nd quarter of 2019, according to the U.S. Census Bureau's Quarterly Summary of State and Local Taxes.

Sales and gross receipt taxes include taxes on such things as license, alcohol, amusements, insurance, fuel, parimutuels, public utilities and tobacco products.

In addition to detailed tax revenue data from each state, the Quarterly Summary of State and Local Government Tax Revenue includes an estimate of state and local government tax revenue at a national level.

The Census Bureau cautions that it sets the tax classifications among the survey categories, and they may differ from the classifications set by the state governments.

Overall, North Carolina collected $9.1 billion in combined tax revenues in the latest quarter.
