Beginning January 1, 2017, lodging tax in Washington’s City of Prosser Tourism Promotion Area (T.P.A.) will increase.
A $2.00 charge per room per night will apply to lodging businesses located within the T.P.A., and with at least 40 rooms, provided the room rate is $70.01 or greater.
For lodging businesses within the T.P.A. with at least 40 rooms and a nightly rate of $70.00 or less, the charge will be $1.00 per night per room.
Additional information, including location codes, is available through the Washington State Department of Revenue.
Occupancy tax compliance is never easy, and basing the rate on the number of rooms in the establishment just makes it trickier. Fortunately, Avalara provides occupancy tax solutions for the hotel industry. Learn more.
