Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session

Subject: Maximum County Hotel Room Tax Increase
I am planning to introduce legislation that increases the maximum county hotel room tax for nine specific counties from 3 percent to 5 percent.

The bill amends Section 1770.2 of the County Code, which applies to the following counties: Blair, Cambria, Centre, Chester, Indiana, Lancaster, Lycoming, Mercer and York. The local hotel tax is optional and is enacted, increased or decreased by a vote of the county commissioners.

If counties choose to enact the higher tax, the revenue will be collected and distributed as currently provided in the law: the tax revenue is collected by the county and distributed to the local visitors bureau, which is required to spend it for tourism purposes. The bill does not change that.

Thank you for your consideration.

Introduced as HB1486
