  1. So in 2018 we could have greeted our visitors with a low and inviting 5% sales tax. Instead we re-imposed the 1% mandatory tax and extended the 4% tourism tax county-wide. The net effect was slapping our visitors with a very un-welcoming 10% Total tourism/sales tax. We voted to go from a 5% tax to a 10% tax. And now they’re about to raise it to 15%. Just as the entire tourism industry hangs in the balance. 15% of nothing will always be nothing. Higher taxes always hurt Everyone!! When will we learn?

  2. I agree that Sheridan Travel and Tourism is big business here. The one thing that bothers me though out of the 59 states the only state tha gas less tourists is Alaska . Wyoming and all cities should Reevaluate their tourist goals.
    For instance, this area has a lot of history from the 1860’s on for the old west. This should be exploited a lot of tourists are very interested in this history.
