An amount of $33 billion surplus in Texas tax revenue has surpassed the combined state budget of Connecticut with $20 billion, Delaware with $5 billion, and Vermont with $8 billion. The state is now debating on how to efficiently spend this state budget.

Moreover, the state is cited as one of the most popular places to move in the country. This also means that more people are paying their taxes and it is not a surprise anymore why it has reached a $33 billion surplus in Texas tax revenue.
