LART (Lodging and Auto Rental Tax)
A funny little acronym with a BIG impact on our community. What is it? In short, this is a tax that visitors pay when they stay at a local lodging property or rent a car. That means it's tax money that our community DOES NOT have to pay, but still enjoys all its benefits! That's right, unless you take a nice stay-cation here in COS where you stay in a hotel, resort or AirBnB, or you rent a car, you will NEVER pay this tax.
Think about a time you went on vacation and checked out of a hotel. Those added taxes on your invoice is a lodging tax. Most destinations' tax range from 11-16%. Our LART? Just 2%! We have one of the lowest LART percentages in the country. But don't let her small percentage fool you - this small amount makes a BIG difference in our community and help fuel our economy.
