CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Taxable sales in Nevada jumped 6.3 percent in July over the same month a year ago, with big gains in restaurants, bars and electronics sales.

Nevada merchants sold $4 billion in taxable goods during the month. Clothing, vehicle and furniture sales were also up over last year.

Sales in Clark County shot up 8.8 percent to $2.9 billion. Washoe County posted gains of 6.5 percent, for total sales of $563 million.

The state collected $313 million in gross sales and use taxes for July.

Ten of Nevada’s 17 counties reported increased sales activity. The exceptions were the rural counties of Churchill, Elko, Eureka, Humboldt, Lander, Mineral and Nye, which are prone to wide swings in month-to-month sales activity.
