For March 2021, the tourism tax revenue for Duluth city is “up significantly” compared to this month 2020, as per Jennifer Carlson, the finance director of the city.
The tax collection for hotel, motel, food and beverage came in at $715,296 compared to $505,680 for March of 2020. The revenue for March has also increased 10.4% from the 2021 March revenue budget of $647,891.
Looking year-to-date, the tourism tax revenue of Duluth is at $1,801,862, which dropped 9.2% from this time in 2020.
However, now it’s up 8.3% from what’s budgeted for 2021’s revenue so far at $1,664,191, according to Carlson.
Obviously, the revenue is a good sign of what’s coming in Duluth’s summer tourism season which is really not starting before June.
