BISMARCK — North Dakota's taxable sales and purchases rose 13.2% in the first quarter of 2022, according to a report issued Thursday, June 23, by Tax Commissioner Brian Kroshus.

Taxable sales and purchases for January, February, and March of 2022 were $4.7 billion, according to the report.

“It’s encouraging to see continued growth in taxable sales and purchases for the beginning of 2022, a reflection of buying activity by consumers and businesses across the state,” Kroshus said via news release. “This is the fourth quarter in a row that the state has experienced an increase in taxable sales and purchases, since the decline due to the pandemic.”

All of the 15 major industry sectors report taxable sales and purchases increases when compared to the first quarter of 2021. Most notably, the mining and oil extraction sector increased by $118.1 million (a 37.1% increase) and the wholesale trade sector increased by $227.2 million (a 27.5% increase).

“It is rare to see an increase in every major industry sector,” stated Kroshus. “With all of the industries showing growth, the overall economy is moving in a positive direction – demonstrating the underlying strength of North Dakota’s well-rounded economy.”

Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
