Lodging Tax Information
On June 13, 2019, the Delaware General Assembly enacted Senate Bill 64, which authorized the Town of Georgetown to adopt a 3% tax on public accommodations. On June 19, 2019, Governor Carney signed the bill into law and on July 10, 2019, Town Council enacted Ordinance 2019-04 which created the local lodging tax of 3%. The tax is effective for reservations or contracts paid in full on or after November 1, 2019.
The Town of Georgetown's Lodging Tax "piggybacks" on the State of Delaware's Public Accommodations Tax. As such, Georgetown's Lodging Tax incorporates the State Public Accommodations Tax's definitions and exemptions.
The Lodging Tax Payment Voucher must be completed monthly and mailed to the address on the form.
