Hotel Tax

Under Treasurer Maisano, our office has renewed our efforts to collect Hotel Tax. Hotel Tax, under Commonwealth regulations, now includes private Bed & Breakfasts, Air B&B, VRBO, Price Line, Trivago, KAYAK, Travelocity, Booking.com, Orbitz, Expedia, TripAdvisor, Hotwire, Kiwi.com and Skyway to name a few.

Our goal in restarting this formal program is to claim the tax funds paid by any visitor to Pennsylvania. By collecting these funds our mission is to offset some of everyone's tax burden in some way.

As Chester County continues to be a place others want to visit we can anticipate a growth in this revenue. 100% of these funds remain in Chester County with 96% going toward tourism.

If you own a hotel or B&B and have any questions about Hotel Tax in Chester County, please feel free to contact Susan Scott at siscott@chesco.org or call 610-344-5601.
