FY 2020/2021 State Accommodation Tax Committee Funding Recommendations
State Accommodations Tax (SATAX) is paid by tourists for rental charges on accommodations when staying on the island. Since SATAX revenues must be spent on tourism-related expenditures, the Town allocates the revenue annually through an application process. On May 15, the State Accommodation Tax Committee made funding recommendations for the disbursement. Their recommendations went before the Ways and Means Committee prior to Town Council approval on June 2.
