Hotel taxes in California

From Ballotpedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Hotel taxes in California are locally-imposed taxes that are paid by guests who stay at hotels or similar establishments within the geographical borders of the municipality that is levying the tax.

About 400 California cities impose a hotel tax on visitors to their city, or roughly 85% of the approximately 480 cities in California. Sixty California cities levy a hotel tax that exceeds 10%.[1]
