• Beginning April 1, 2024 Jackson County will begin collecting a 3% Lodging & Excise Tax (or “bed tax”) from travelers staying within the county.  The bed tax, passed by the Jackson County Commissioners at their January 10, 2024 meeting, will fund Jackson County’s Tourism Board.  The Tourism Board works diligently to attract people to our county.

    The County Auditor’s office is tasked with collecting these funds and distributing them appropriately.
