Stark Commissioners Extend 6-Percent County Motel Bed Tax to All Overnight Facilities

CANTON, Ohio (News talk 1480 WHBC) – Do you have a house or even a small room in Stark County that you rent out through Airbnb or another service?

Those customers will soon be paying the county’s six-percent bed tax.

County commissioners voted to lower the threshold on what constitutes an “overnight stay” facility from five rooms to one.

Commissioner Richard Regula says it’s fair to all.
