BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s taxable sales and purchases increased more than 11 percent during April, May and June when compared to the same three months a year ago.

Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger says North Dakota recorded about $7 billion in taxable sales and purchases during the second quarter. That’s up more than $716 million from the second quarter in 2013.

Rauschenberger says it was the largest quarterly increase in nearly two years.
