Transient Occupancy/Lodging Tax
New Kent County Ordinance Chapter 66 Article VII, states that all hotels, motels, boardinghouses, travel campgrounds, bed & breakfasts, and other facilities offering guests rooms and places to lodge for rent for fewer than 30 consecutive days, shall be levied 2% of the amount charged to the visitor. This tax does not apply to rooms or spaces rented for more than thirty (30) consecutive days.

Admissions Tax
