Local Accommodations Tax

NOTICE: Tax Payment Deadline Extended

On March 23, 2020, City Council approved an ordinance temporarily waiving the penalties for late payment of local accommodations tax for the reporting periods due March 20, 2020, and April 20, 2020; however, taxpayers are still required to submit their monthly tax reports to the City by the appropriate due dates. Failure to file a timely tax report form will be considered non-payment and will accrue a late penalty. 

Taxpayers can remit payment for the March 20 and April 20 due dates as late as May 20 without any late payment penalties, as long as they submit the required monthly reports on time.

If you have not done so, please file your February local accommodations tax reporting form as soon as possible to avoid the accrual of additional late penalties. The March reporting form is due April 20, 2020.

If you have any questions regarding local accommodations tax, please feel free to reach out to Karen Osborne at kosborne@greenvillesc.gov or Lorie Turner at lturner@greenvillesc.gov.
