Tourist Development Tax Funding

What is the Tourist Development Tax (TDT) about?

The idea behind the TDT is to increase the utilization of lodging rooms and to increase the room revenues and the related tax on such rentals. The events and projects selected for TDT funding are those that successfully generate lodging room overnight stays that increase the local tax receipts to the County. Local TDT receipts collected by the County are used to leverage greater out-of-market visitation and repeat visits from people who stay overnight in Hillsborough County to enjoy the venues and events.
