Accommodation Tax is primarily dedicated to local trail projects since the Yampa Street improvements portion of referendum 2A was completed last year. A small amount each year is dedicated towards the marketing of these projects and capital improvements at Haymaker. December collections were up 9.65% compared to the same period last year. Year to date accommodations tax is up 9.61% compared to the same period last year.

Building Use Tax is used to fund capital projects for the City of Steamboat Springs. This tax fluctuates depending on building permits issued, use tax audits completed, and the size and number of developments in the City. December net use tax collections total $177,492. Year to date net use tax collections are down 25% through the same period last year due to larger project deposits collected in the prior year.
