Beginning on 1 January 2014, a local tax has been introduced in South Tyrol/Südtirol. The revenue from this local tax will be used for the expansion and maintenance of infrastructure and services, as well as for the organization of cultural and sports events.
The local tax will be levied at all lodging establishments, on a per-guest and per-overnight-stay basis. The amount is contingent upon the category of the establishment. Children and adolescents under 14 years of age are exempt from levy.
The local tax is payable upon departure and is listed separately on the invoice.
From 01.01.2018 the amount of local tax is graduated as follows:
- 1,60 Euro per guest and night in accommodations with four stars, four stars superior and five stars
- 1,20 Euro per guest and night in accommodations with three stars and three stars superior
- 0,85 Euro per guest and night in all other accommodations
