Collections for both room tax and sales tax in Door County went up 2016 according to the Door County Visitor Bureau. In 2016, the county collected $327,045 more ($$4,457,872) in room taxes than it did in 2015 and $288,998 more ($3,914,091) in sales tax collections. Jon Jarosh from the DCVB says there was additional good news to come from the report.
2009 was the first year all 19 Door County municipalities collected a room tax to contribute to the Tourism Zone, which has seen a 47.33 percent increase in that time. The DCVB will release more information on what this means for the county when it celebrates National Tourism Week in May.
