A Santa Barbara County Hotel Tax, Measure K ballot question was on the June 8, 2010 ballot for voters in Santa Barbara County, where it was approved.

Measure K maintained an existing 10% bed tax rate on hotels in the unincorporated areas of the county. The bed tax for these hotels was moved to 10% from 8% in 1990, with the additional 2% set to expire in 2010. If Measure K had been defeated, the bed tax would have gone back to 8%. If that had happened, the county would have received about $1.2 million less in bed tax revenue than it currently does.[1]
