Notice to All Walton County Bed Tax Collectors
The local ordinance requiring $.005 tax on short term accommodation rentals in South Walton County will sunset September 30, 2014. This planned expiration of a portion of the tourism development tax results in the total bed tax dropping from the current 4.5% to 4.0%. Bed tax collectors should address their software platforms and/or procedural processing as the proper amount of tax shall be collected from visitors and remitted to Walton County beginning with collections on October 1, 2014.
Please direct any questions to Joyce Sunday at (850)267-2040 or Tori Waters at (850) 267-3066.
