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 (2020/2021) is available online here.

Applications will not be accepted if received incomplete or after 5 p.m. on Wednesday, September 16, 2020.

Questions regarding the application process should be directed to Linda Maietta at 843-255-2297 or
