Lodging tax revenues continue upward trend over last year


Lodging tax revenues for October were up from the same month last year county-wide according to the latest report from the Cook County Auditor-Treasurer’s office.
Lutsen-Tofte revenues for the year-to-date are up 8.2% over 2009. Grand Marais year-to-date revenues are up 6.3% for the same period last year. The Gunflint Trail revenues for the year so far, are up 4.4%. Overall, lodging tax revenues county-wide are up 7.3% for the year-to-date.
The Auditor’s office emphasizes that not all businesses report taxes at the same time each year and revenues are an “apples-to-apples comparison.” That means only businesses which reported lodging tax revenues both in October of this year and last year are included in the monthly accounting.
