CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Taxable sales in Nevada jumped 10.4 percent in September, fueled in part by big gains in sales at bars and restaurants, accommodations and durable goods. It marks the 15th straight month of improvement.

A report released late Tuesday by the state Department of Taxation shows 14 of Nevada's 17 counties showed sales increases over the same month a year ago.

Sales in Clark County, Nevada's population hub and economic center, were up 10.5 percent, while sales fell 1.4 percent in Washoe County, which includes Reno.

In all, merchants sold nearly $3.6 billion in goods, on which the state collected gross sales and use taxes of $280.3 million. The portion that goes to the state general fund totaled nearly $71 million and is up about 9 percent compared with September 2010.
