County Hotel Tax Bill Introduced

A new bill was introduced yesterday in the Illinois House that would authorize a county with more than 800,000 but less than 3,000,000 residents (DuPage County) to impose a hotel tax within incorporated areas of the county (i.e., in cities and villages) that have also adopted a municipal hotel tax. Currently, counties can only impose a hotel tax in unincorporated areas of the county. HB 3846. So, if this passes, hotels that are located in cities and villages in DuPage County that already impose a hotel tax used for tourism or economic development purposes would be subject to both a municipal and county hotel tax.
