Room Tax Com-mission

Town of Saint Germain Accomodations (Room) Tax Commission

The Accomodations Tax Commission was created by the Town Board aftrer adopting the Accomodations Tax Ordinance in 1998. By WI Statute, the Commission shall:

1. Periodically set the amout of the Accomodations Tax imposed by the Town
2. Report any delinquinces or inaccuracies in the reporting of Accomodations Tax to the Town Board
3. Use accomodations tax appropriated to the Commission to promote and develop tourism in the town
4. Submit a report to the Town Board on or before October 1 of each year itemizing its expenditures and proposing its budget for the next calendar year
5. Work in cooperation with the Town Treasurer to administer the Accomodations Tax
6. Cooperate with an annual audit of the expenditures of the Commission if such an audit is requested by the Town Treasurer

The Town Board adopted a revised "Accommodations Tax" ordinance on June 21, 2017. The primary purpose of the revision was to eliminate the Room Tax Commission created by the board in 1998. Room Tax Commissions are typically needed in municipalities where more than one organization is contracted with to provide tourism and marketing services utilizing room tax revenues. The Town of St. Germain has never contracted with anyone ohter than the St. Germain Chamber of Commerce for those services, therefore no real need exists for the Room Tax Commission. The Town Board now works directly with the Chamber rather than through the Commission. The "Accommodations Tax" ordinance can be viewed on the Ordinances page of this website.

The below chart represents St. Germain annual gross Room Tax revenues of which 75% annually is provided to the Chamber of Commerce for promotion of tourism and 25% remains in control of the Town Board.
