A 2 percent accommodations tax is charged in Cherokee County on hotel stays, campgrounds, mobile home parks, etc.

These funds can be used for promotion and advertising specifically designed to bring tourists to Cherokee County, as long as Cherokee County is listed as a co-sponsor on all advertising – including, but not limited to, all print media, radio, television and online ads.

Funds can only be awarded to those projects that will attract people to stay overnight in Cherokee County and to frequent Cherokee County restaurants.
