Las Vegas tourism agency expecting $200 million loss from pandemic Bryan Horwath, Las Vegas Sun · April 15, 2020 at 10:03 pm The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority is bracing to lose up to $200 million in room tax revenue in its upcoming fiscal 2021 budget. Room tax money dried up after Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered casinos statewide closed until at least May 1 to curb the spread of the coronavirus. The LVCVA’s share of the room tax revenue is expected to drop from $300 million to about $100 million to $120 million for the fiscal year that starts July 1, said the authority’s CEO, Steve Hill. At Hill’s request, the board approved delaying the presentation of the 2021 budget until next month.
