Haywood County collects a 4% Occupancy Tax on paid overnight accommodations in the County.  This tax is levied on customers of hotels, motels, condominiums, cottages, cabins, villas and single family home rentals that rent accommodations of less than 90 days in duration.  Of the 4%, 3% of the taxes collected go directly to the Haywood County Tourism Development Authority for the purpose of marketing and enhancing the county as a destination and the remaining 1% goes back to the zip code area where it was collected.  The 1% funds are administered through a partnership funding program designed to market and promote the zip code area and to fund non-event projects that will increase the use of lodging facilities by attracting visitors and business travelers.
