LGA latest new and announcements
Charla Duncan, who is the Community and Economic Development Director for Warren County, asked the LGA to share the following information with our Warren County members:

At the June 3, 2024, meeting, the Warren County Board of Commissioners voted to implement a 5% occupancy tax on short-term lodging in Warren County effective July 1, 2024.  Warren County has created a webpage to house information about this process.  It is currently being developed and they hope to have more materials about the tax implementation on the webpage soon. For right now, there is a video explaining the occupancy tax process, legislation, and motivation (this was filmed prior to the public hearing).  Please be advised that Warren County is the last county on Lake Gaston to implement this tax, including the VA counties. The property owners that rent out their homes in the other four counties around Lake Gaston are already seeing their guests pay this accommodation tax.  The Warren County Finance Office will be handling the implementation and collections.

The link to the webpage is: https://www.warrencountync.com/876/Occupancy-Tax-5
