Orange County, FL Resort Tax Collections for January Down 10%

ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- Orange County Comptroller Martha Haynie  (top right photo) announced today that resort tax collections received by the County in February for the hotel collection month of January 2010 were $11,588,200. Resort taxes are charged on short-term rentals, mostly hotels and motels.

Comptroller Haynie noted that January 2010 collections were nearly 10 percent lower than January 2009. “This drop on the heels of last month’s leveling off shows us that the tourist economy is not yet coming out of the recession,” Haynie stated.
