You're pumped to go to Chicago (come springtime), but be forewarned: It's been named the most travel tax-burdensome city in America by the GBTA Foundation, the education and research arm of the Global Business Travel Association.
In a report released Tuesday, Chicago, along with New York and Minneapolis, was named the worst city in America for overall daily travel tax burden (which includes general sales tax and discriminatory travel taxes, i.e. taxes from hotel, car rental and restaurant). Not surprisingly, the least burdensome cities were primarily in Florida and California (yay Orlando!).
In order: Chicago ($41.04/day), New York ($38.65/day), Minneapolis ($36.70/day), Kansas City, MO ($36.61/day), Indianapolis, ($36/day), Cleveland ($35.41/day), Boston ($35.32/day), Seattle ($35.11/day), Nashville ($34.75
/day) and Houston ($34.16/day).
