Hotel/Motel Tax

A tax increase is on the June 7th Ballot in St. Joseph.

The 3% increase to the hotel-motel tax brings the tax total to 6%. The tax is paid by those who rent overnight guest rooms, but does not apply to meeting rooms or reception and dining facilities. Co-chairman of the hotel-motel tax, John Courley says much of the tax he says that money would help fund specific projects in St. Joseph.
