Beaufort County temporarily suspends Accommodation Tax application process

The Beaufort County 2% Accommodation Tax Grant Program application process has been temporarily suspended due to lower than anticipated collections.

Each year, the Beaufort County 2% Accommodation Tax Grant Program distributes funds to qualified groups, organizations and government entities for tourism and marketing promotions. The funds assist and support the programs of qualified groups who attract visitors from 50 miles or more to Beaufort County. The funds for distribution are derived from a tax imposed on tourist lodging facilities. Last year, $500,000 was distributed to qualified groups.

Due to a reallocation of funding by the S.C. Department of Revenue, Beaufort County has sustained a lower balance than is traditionally held at this time of the year. To efficiently utilize the county’s resources, the grant program will be temporarily suspended until the receipt of its fourth quarter distributions. As soon as the application process is opened, the public will be notified.
