Lodging tax revenues for February 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 9.3 percent over 2010 at this time. Grand Marais year-to-date revenues are up 11.2 percent. The Gunflint Trail revenues for the year are up 7.2 percent for the second month in a row.  Overall, lodging tax revenues county-wide are up 9.3 percent 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 February of this year and last year are included in the monthly accounting.
