Pinellas County hits highest tourism tax collection record

August 11, 2021 - Tourist development tax collected for the month of June in Pinellas County was the highest in the county's history at roughly $8.27 million– a 94% year-over-year increase from 2020. One of the most significant findings was is StPete/Clearwater’s average daily rate (ADR). In the month of June, the county saw an ADR of $189.57 – 30.3% higher than June 2019 and more than $20 higher than the state’s monthly figure. Average occupancy for the month was 80.6% with six days reporting more than 90%. Despite Red Tide and the uptick of the Covid-19 Delta variant, July 2021 numbers are pacing similarly to June with occupancy and ADR outpacing record-setting 2019 metrics, according to VSPC.
