State accommodations taxes (A-Tax) are collected by the state directly from accommodations providers in the county. The state then issues quarterly payments to the county from these collections to be used for the purposes of promoting tourism. Grants from Greenville County´s collection of state accommodations tax funds are available for award annually.
Travelers Rest appoints members to its Accommodations Tax Advisory Committee who review A-Tax grant applications and present its grant award recommendations to City Council, and City Council issues the grant awards.
Travelers Rest City Administrator oversees the A-Tax award program in accordance with grant program guidelines established by the Accommodations Tax Advisory Committee.
