Taxes on Sleeping Room Occupied / Rented
On November 3, 1992, the voters in St. Charles County overwhelmingly approved the 5% tax that can be imposed on room fees that hotels and motels in the county charge to their clients in accordance with Section 67.1158 RSMo. The validity of the tax was upheld by the courts in St. Charles County Convention and Sports Facilities Authority v. Mydler, 950 S.W.2d 668 (Mo. App. 1997).
The 5% tax is collected by the County Collector under an agreement between the county and the CSFA. The ordinance authorizing the contract was passed in June 1994.
