Scott County Visitors Commission Funding

The majority of Indiana's convention and visitor's bureaus are organized under what is known as the Indiana Uniform Innkeepers Tax, or Indiana Code 6-9-18. The innkeepers tax language also discussed details on the application of a chapter Indiana Code 6-9-29. Initial legislation was introduced in 1982, with subsequent revisions. The code allows any local entity to adopt IC 6-9-18 and a lodging tax of up to 5 percent, with the tax being used for local tourism development and promotions. Some counties have a higher percent and they are either under their own legislation or have sought special dispensation from the Indiana General Assembly.

Authorized by a County Council, the Uniform Innkeepers Tax code establishes a local tourism authority appointed by various entities within the county to oversee its usage. These tourism commissions are sworn representatives of the community and must act in good faith to use these appropriations as stipulated in the tax code.
