Beaufort County 2% State Accommodations Tax Applications Due September 9


Wednesday, June 26, 2019 10:16 AM

The Beaufort County Accommodations Tax Board is now accepting applications from organizations in Beaufort County wanting to receive grants from the two percent (2%) state accommodations tax fund. South Carolina law allows for a 2% tax levy on the rental of all transient accommodations to help provide financial support to promote tourism and fund tourism-related activities in municipalities and counties within the state. As a result, individuals staying overnight in hotels, motels, inns, and vacation rentals pay 2% in addition to the statewide sales tax and any local sales and use tax applied to their lodging cost.

The current year application (2019/2020) is available online here.

Applications will not be accepted if received incomplete or after 5 p.m. on Monday, September 9, 2019. Questions regarding the application process should be directed to Linda Maietta at 843-255-2297 or
