MUNICIPAL AND REGIONAL DISTRICT TAX (MRDT)
As well in British Columbia a Municipal and Regional District Tax of up to 2% and in some cases 3% is charged in provincially approved municipalities by hotels, motels, cottages, inns, resorts and other roofed accommodations. This levy is used to fund local Destination Marketing Organizations. Some 50 municipalities are approved to collect this 2% or 3% tax. The additional 2% or 3% MRDT is only charged on short-term room rentals and does not apply to overnight campsite rentals.
