No Negative Effects from Lodging Tax

Jackson officials say they don’t think the county’s lodging tax is having a negative effect on traffic or lack of housing. In a voter’s forum last week, officials from the Jackson Hole Travel and Tourism Board and Jackson Town Manager Bob McLaurin were asked about drawbacks to the lodging tax. But the Jackson Hole News & Guide reports the officials said they couldn’t name one. Overnight stays in Teton County are charged a 2 percent tax, 60 percent of which goes toward marketing Jackson Hole to visitors. But a housing study released last week found that more tourism will worsen the housing shortage in and around Jackson

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
