Hotel Rental Tax Funding

Hotel Rental Tax Funding exists to stimulate and assist Washington County, Maryland organizations, agencies and businesses in developing tourism attractions, enhancing economic development and supporting cultural and recreational projects in Washington County. The objective is to help organizations and agencies undertake activities that would not be considered without special funding. Hotel Rental Tax Funding is designed to assist in establishing activities and events which because of their own merit, can eventually grow and succeed without financial assistance from this funding.

Hotel Rental Tax Funding was established to provide funding opportunities for the County’s local municipalities, businesses, organizations, residents, and visitors. The County generates funds from a County Hotel Rental Tax of 6%. These funds are invested back into the community through the Convention and Visitors Bureau, local municipalities and designated local projects.
