The Municipal Data Bank maintained by DOR's Division of Local Services has created a new Local Options page that, for the first time, includes current data on revenue returned to cities and towns that have adopted the local option rooms tax.

This new local option rooms tax revenue data covers the years from 2008 through the present.
