Lodging Tax

Accommodations tax, also known as lodging tax, applies to every business that provides lodging services. Lodging vendors are required to charge 3% on all lodging services in Greenwood Village. The 3% is calculated based on the lease or rental of a single room rate (excluding tax). This is in addition to the 3% sales tax.
