The local option meals tax of .75 percent has now delivered $11.31 million in revenue to the 78 cities and towns that have adopted it (as of May 3, 2010).
For a list of those 78 communities, click here. (Communities are added to this list as they notify DOR of acceptance of the local option.)
For a map of those communities, click here.
And for a table on the amount distributed, click here.
In general, the amounts collected and distributed back to cities and towns are roughly in line with estimates DOR released last year after the local option was approved. Those estimates were based on the most recently available U.S. Census data and were just that, estimates.
The estimates did not reflect seasonal variation. It is entirely possible that some communities will see far more revenue from the local option meals tax when the weather is better and there is more dining on the part of tourists, for instance.
