Southwest Florida Economic Outlook
2nd Quarter 2023 Outlook
The after-effects of Hurricane Ian continue to be felt in the Southwest Florida economy. As rebuilding
continues in Fort Myers Beach and other coastal areas, Lee County continues to experience the larger
effect in tourist tax revenue, down year-to-year by an average of 52.5 percent in 2023 Q2. Real
taxable sales have also followed this downward trend since Hurricane Ian. All counties have followed
a similar downward trend, with the exception of Charlotte County, where the real taxable sales have
mostly been on an upward trend since the lowest point in September 2022.
