N. Dakota taxable sales, purchases level in 2013

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's taxable sales and purchases increased less than 1 percent in 2013 following a year of double-digit growth.

Tax Department records show taxable sales and purchases totaled a record $25.4 billion last year. That's up from $25.2 billion in 2012.

State Tax commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger (RAW'-shun-bur-gur) says a ''slower and more sustainable growth'' was expected in 2013, after taxable sales and purchases in oil-rich North Dakota soared 29 percent in 2012.

Last year, the oil boomtown recorded $3.3 billion in taxable sales and purchases. Fargo had $2.6 billion
