Burnet County currently collects a tax from overnight visitors who utilize our lodges, hotels, motels and other hospitality venues. This tax is designated by law to be used to market and promote the county to help generate even more overnight visitation and provide an economic benefit to the county as a whole.
The tax is available for use:
- to establish, improve, maintain a convention center or visitor information center
- to pay administrative costs for facilitating convention registration
- to pay for advertising, solicitations and promotions that attract tourists and conventions to the county or its vicinity
- to promote the arts
- to fund historical renovation or preservation programs
