Beginning April 1, 2019, lodging facilities within the city limits of Coos Bay or North Bend will begin collecting 9.5% tax per overnight stay in a commercial lodging facility, including hotels/motels/B&B inns, RV parks, and vacation rentals. This applies to check-ins on or after April 1, 2019.
State Law now allows lodging properties collecting local TLT to keep 5% of the total amount of local TLT collected as an administrative fee. New reporting forms will be made available for use when remitting TLT and will provide instructions for retaining this administrative fee.
The increase to the TLT will allow the Coos Bay-North Bend Visitor & Convention Bureau to increase their advertising, marketing and promotions efforts to bring more tourism to the Coos Bay, North Bend, and Charleston area, collectively known as Oregon’s Adventure Coast. This will allow our area to compete for the tourist dollars against our neighbors on the Central and North Coast.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the City of Coos Bay’s Finance Department at 541-269-8915.
