Transient Lodging Tax Study Available Online

December 20, 2019

In 2018, local transient lodging taxes (TLT) generated more than $200 million dollars across the state, up from about $90 million in 2007. To understand the economic impacts of this revenue source, Travel Oregon contracted ECONorthwest to develop the Local Transient Lodging Tax: Expenditures and Administration report. At the time of the study, 120 jurisdictions had a local TLT, and 101 of these jurisdictions (84%) participated in the project by completing surveys via interviews. This information was compiled in a report demonstrating how cities and counties spend local TLTs on different programs throughout the state.
