Room Tax

In 2014 the town enacted a 4.5% Room Tax ordinance.  This ordinance applies to anyone who rents property to "transients" for less than 30 consecutive days.  The funds collected from this tax are split between the Chamber of Commerce and the town.  Seventy percent of the tax collected must be used by the Sayner-Star Lake Chamber of Commerce for "tourism promotion and development".   The remaining thirty percent goes into the town general budget and may be used for any purpose.  Forms are available through links on this website.
