How is the project funded?
The project has been funded through a loan secured with the State Bank of Lizton, using the Innkeepers Tax as collateral. Should things come to the very worst the community will not suffer the weight of the loan, the property will be in the hands of the bank.
What is Innkeepers Tax?
The Innkeepers Tax is a 5% tax that is charged on overnight rooms rented for less than 30 days. The tax is collected from the Visitor, by the Innkeeper, and paid to the county treasurer. That tax can only be used to promote tourism in Brown County as outlined in IC 6-9-14.
