Transient Accommodations Tax

Act 1 of the 2021 Special Session, recently passed by the Hawai`i Legislature, which eliminated the County’s distribution share of the Transient Accommodations Tax (TAT) revenue. The TAT allocation to the County of Kaua`i (“County”) previously provided General Fund revenues with nearly $15,000,000 annually When the County’s share was suspended last year during the pandemic, the County utilized its Reserve Fund to balance the budget for Fiscal Years 2021 and 2022. It is essential that the County now fills that TAT revenue gap to avoid the prospect of future financial shortfalls.
