City of Newburgh to Begin Taxing Travelers Staying Overnight

The City of Newburgh will begin taxing travelers for overnight stays beginning on April 1, 2023.

Among the establishments included in the new tax are hotels, motels, inns, beds and breakfasts, vacation rentals, short-term rentals, and rooms or properties secured through online hosting companies and room re-marketers. Travelers staying overnight will be imposed a 5% City hotel room occupancy tax.

Every individual, business, hosting company, and room re-marketer renting out property or rooms for short-term stays in the City of Newburgh is now required to register for a Certificate of Authority by filling out an Application for Certificate of Authority. Additionally, every registrant is required to collect the tax, or ensure the tax is collected, and submit quarterly returns to the City of Newburgh.

“The City of Newburgh is committed to growing our tourism and hospitality industries, and we are excited to welcome travelers into the City to experience our restaurants, galleries, parks, small businesses, and the best waterfront entertainment in the Hudson Valley,” stated Newburgh City Manager Todd Venning. “The City of Newburgh extends sincere gratitude to Governor Kathy Hochul, Assemblymember Jonathan Jacobson, and Senator James Skoufis for their work to strengthen the City of Newburgh’s economy.”
