Hawaii: Hotel tax revenue jumps 25 percent

Hotel tax revenues in Hawaii have jumped nearly 25 percent in the first two months of the fiscal year.

The increase follows both a 1 percentage point increase in the transient accommodations tax and a rebound in the number of tourists visiting the islands.

The state Department of Taxation said Wednesday it collected $43.6 million in transient accommodations taxes in July and August.

That compares to $35 million for the same period in the 2009 fiscal year.

The state also collected $402.9 million in general excise and use taxes during July and August.

That’s 2.2 percent more than the same period in 2009.
