Vail Lodging Tax


A 1.4% tax on lodging within the Town’s boundaries was established by a general election on November 2, 1999 (with collections beginning January 1, 2000). Proceeds from the tax are to be used for organization, management, promotion, and marketing of public events, for business recruitment and for tourism promotion. Tax revenues and spending are governed by the Vail Local Marketing District, with Town Council members also serving as the District’s board members. However, they are counseled regularly by an Advisory Council made up of local business owners and representatives of the Vail community. (Link to VLMDAC within Econ Dev).
