State Accommodations Tax A municipality receiving more than $50,000 in revenue from the state accommodations tax must appoint an advisory committee to make recommendations for how the revenue generated from the accommodations tax should be spent. The advisory committee consists of seven members, with a majority being selected from the hospitality industry of the municipality or county receiving the revenue. At least two of the hospitality industry members must be from the lodging industry, where applicable. One member must represent the cultural organizations of the municipality receiving the revenue. The advisory committee submits written recommendations to the municipal council at least once annually regarding the expenditure of state accommodations tax proceeds. The municipal council may accept, reject or modify these recommendations. The council must submit an annual report detailing use of the state accommodations tax proceeds to the state Tourism Expenditure Review Committee. TERC is an 11-member committee that reviews the tourism related expenditures funded with state accommodations tax revenue. Local Accommodations Tax There is no requirement for an advisory committee for local accommodations tax expenditures. The municipal council is solely responsible for approving local accommodations tax expenditures unless otherwise established by the council.
