When tourists decide to visit Colorado, they give more to the state then they thought.
When tourists decide to visit Colorado, they give more to the state then they thought. When they spend money on hotels, food, transportation, and merchandise, all that then contributes to Colorado.
Amber Kollman, Public Relations Program Manager of the Colorado Tourism Office takes part of helping bring tourists to Colorado. Kollman and her team make sure that enough people are taking a trip to our home state.
Different people around the state of Colorado then come together to work on advertising the state to target audiences.
“We do a lot of analysis on who we are going to be talking to.” Kollman states, “Full families, foreign travelers, older people who have time to take trips. Things like that.”
These people can then travel to Colorado and spend money on their trip.
All this relates back to helping families because usually tax money is given to the state, then recycled back to the public.
“All of the state taxes are given back to the big fund, and then the legislature decided what happened to the money.” Amber Kollmen says. But when tourists though spend money in Colorado, the government can decide if that money can pay for future taxes.
When this money goes toward taxes, whole families can have the luxury of not paying dues they owe.
In 2013, 976 dollars were taken off taxes. With this progress many people can save money, and spend more on what they really want to do. With the help of tourists, many families can help save money on taxes.
