Why do you pay a tourist tax?The tourist tax is exclusively for encouraging tourism growth:
- Promotes tourist traffic: by financing our touristic structures: pool, skating rink, luge Park ... and facilitating transport: free shuttles, providing you with events and activities all year round.
- Supports the resort's promotion and communication initiatives: accommodation brochures, activities, creation of a new Internet site in 2014.
The Code Général des Collectivités Territoriales (General Code for Territorial Authorities) establishes the rules and the applicable amounts are set annually by the State in the finance law. The commune establishes the rates and the application methods for the tourist tax for its territory, in compliance with the finance law. Rates are to be displayed for your clients.
Currently there are two periods for paying the tourist tax: from May 1 to October 30 and from November 1 to April 30.
We are counting on your and your collaboration to ensure that the tourist tax is collected as efficiently as possible from our visitors as this is our source of finance for promoting your assets.
We inform you that the law n° 2009-888 of July 22, 2009 (J.O. of July 24, 2009) and its application decree (n° 2009-1552 of December 23 2009) provide new provisions applicable to furnished holiday rentals and guest houses.
