Greenville County Ordinance No. 2115 created the Accommodations Tax Advisory Committee (ATax) to make recommendations to County Council concerning the expenditure of revenue generated from the Accommodations Tax. 

The advisory committee consists of seven (7) members, with four of the members being selected from the hospitality industry in the unincorporated area of Greenville County. Members are appointed for a staggered two-year term.  

The four members from the hospitality industry include:

  • Two members representing large, full service hotels in the unincorporated area of the County.
  • One member representing a limited service hotel in the unincorporated area of the County.
  • Notwithstanding any other provisions of this ordinance, one member shall be Chairman of the Board of the Greenville Convention and Visitors Bureau regardless of residence.

The remaining three members shall be selected as follows:

  • One member shall be a representative from the cultural organizations of the County.
  • Two members shall be appointed at large with one member preferably from the local restaurant association and the other with business ties to the tourism industry in the unincorporated area of the County. 

The committee receives all requests from qualified applicants for funds to be appropriated by County Council in the next fiscal year. The committee transmits their recommendations concerning the expenditures of Accommodations Tax Revenue to the County Council. County Council reviews the recommendations and determines the programs to receive the funding.

The committee meets at 301 University Ridge, Greenville, on an “as needed basis.”
