 Hospitality Tax

On August 1, 2003, the City of Bennettsville Council passed an Ordinance establishing a two percent (2%) local hospitality tax on prepared food, meals and/or beverages.  The taxes are imposed on gross proceeds.  The ordinance states that all affected businesses shall be responsible for collecting local hospitality taxes for the purpose of funding tourism within the city limits of Bennettsville.
