Proposed Dover lodging tax takes big step forward
From Delaware State News
DOVER — Dover Councilman Tanner Polce called it a “call to action and a full-court press.”
That’s after he learned the General Assembly had authorized legislation to allow Kent Levy Court to establish a tax on hotels and similar establishments — and to then direct that revenue to the DE Turf sports complex.
That bill, which passed on June 30, enables Kent County to place a tax of up to 3 percent on hotels, motels and tourist homes — including those in the city of Dover — with the proceeds designated for the Frederica-area sports complex.
