Burnet County currently collects a tax from overnight visitors who utilize our lodges, hotels, motels and vacation homes. This tax is designated by law to be used to market and promote Burnet County to help generate increased overnight visitation and provide an economic benefit to the county.
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
