Goshen County voters will be asked to renew the lodging tax proposition at the Nov. 6 general election. First passed in 1991, this tax is placed on the ballot every four years.
What is the lodging tax?
It is a tax added with the sales tax on the bill for hotels, motels, guest ranches and the short-term (30 days or less) rentals of condominiums and trailer and campground spaces within all of Goshen County. For example: using Goshen County’s current rate of 4 percent on a $50 lodging charge, the lodging tax would be $2 per day. The tax can be from 1 percent to 4 percent, and it must be in 1 percent increments. The amount is determined by the city or county that votes for the tax.
