New lodging tax begins Jan. 1

Thursday, January 3, 2019

A new countywide 1-percent lodging tax goes into effect Jan. 1.

The new tax, adopted by the Clatsop County Board of Commissioners in July, will fund jail operations and tourism promotion. The tax is in addition to any city, state or county transient lodging tax already in place.

Transient lodging providers, which include hotels, motels, bed-and-breakfasts and short-term rental properties, who are engaged in business on Jan. 1 must register with the Clatsop County Assessment and Taxation Office no later than March 1, 2019.
