HERNANDO, Miss. (AP) — DeSoto County officials are asking the Mississippi Department of Revenue for help in determining why there's been a drop in tourism tax collections at the height of the holiday season.

County Administrator Vanessa Lynchard says revenue generated from the 2 percent tourism tax on restaurant meals was down between $70,000 and $100,000.

Lynchard said tourism tax collections have been down for two months now. Board of Supervisors President Mark Gardner said that is out of character for a normally bustling two months before the busy Christmas traveling season.

Lynchard says the threshold for restaurants having to pay the tourism tax is $100,000 generated through the sale of hot food.

Gardner says something must be amiss in the computation of the tourism tax collections.
