Can we be reimbursed for all eligible expenses or is it limited to advertising reimbursements only?

Cities and counties may levy lodging taxes on all charges related to furnishing lodging at hotels, motels, short-term rentals, and recreational vehicle (RV) parks for stays of less than30 days. Revenues received from these taxes are then restricted to the following uses:

  • Tourism marketing
  • Marketing and operations of special events and festivals designed to attract tourists
  • Operations and capital expenditures of tourism-related facilities owned or operated by a municipality or public facilities district, and
  • Operations of tourism-related facilities owned or operated by nonprofit organizations.
