Panama City Beach – Bed tax to increase from 3% to 5%

Panama City Beach –  Bay County commissioners voted today 4-1 to give the TDC its 5th cent bed tax to use for luring in a low-cost air carrier.  The tax increased from 3% to 5%.  One percent appears to be geared to attracting a new airline to start service into the new Bay County International Airport and the other 1% to increase tourist traffic.

I am not sure when the increase is effective but I will let you know.  For now the 5th cent tax will sunset after five years.

Let’s hope it works.  Low cost fares into PCB will be sweet!
