Although no new developments have come from the State House recently regarding the status of the proposed Lodging Tax bill, Tyler Pyburn recently discussed the current status of the bill with Joan Talmadge. Listen to their discussion.
And take a look at Joan’s specific responses to the frequently asked questions that have been pouring into her office over the past few weeks
If I rent starting in April 2019 do the guest pay taxes or does the tax start July 2019 ?
Hi, Marie, the tax applies to any guests who stay in your home starting on July 1, 2019, or later. So, if you’re referring to vacationers who stay with you in April, May, or June, no, they would NOT have to pay the tax this year.
