Transient Lodging Tax

The City of Wilsonville collects a 5% Transient Lodging Tax - part of which goes to the Community Tourism Matching Grant program. This tax is charged on overnight stays in the City.

The tax dollars are collected under the authority of the City's Transient Lodging Tax Ordinance. Lodging providers are responsible for collecting the tax and may keep 5% of the collections to cover their administrative costs.
