Tax Requirements

In 2001, Greenville City Council authorized the levy of a 2% Local Hospitality Tax on prepared meals and beverages including alcoholic beverages, beer, and wine sold in the City of Greenville.

All restaurants, bars, lounges, and private clubs serving food and/or alcohol are required to pay this tax. These funds must be used for tourism-related activities and improvements.

For questions regarding hospitality taxes, please contact the City at 864-232-CARE (2273).
