What is Bed Tax?

A bed tax, also known as a hotel or lodging tax, is a type of tax that is imposed on overnight stays in hotels, motels, and other forms of lodging. This tax is typically collected by the hotel or lodging provider and is usually based on the cost of the room or the number of nights stayed. Bed taxes are used to fund tourism and other local services and are a common source of revenue for local governments.
