Ridgway Lodging Tax Info
This tax is paid for by any visitor staying at lodging accommodations including vacation rental properties. This tax is not paid by residents of Ridgway.
The Ballot Question proposes a change from the current $2.00 per night, per room tax to a 3.5% lodging rate tax. This percentage rate tax is a model practice used by the majority of towns, cities and counties nation wide. It is a more equitable tax. 3.5% is in line with lodging tax collected in other communities in SW Colorado.
