collections were up 17.32% 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. May net use tax collections total $208,484. Year to date net use tax
collections are down 43% through the same period last year due to larger project deposits collected in
the prior year.
