South Carolina coastal city to consider tax for advertising

December 05, 2017 - 4:47 AM

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - Residents of a South Carolina coastal city will consider whether to impose a sales tax to pay for tourism advertising.

Local media outlets reported that North Myrtle Beach City Council voted Monday night to have city residents decide whether to approve a tourism development fee.

City residents would vote March 6 on whether to add the tax.

North Myrtle Beach's chamber of commerce has pushed for such a tax.

Myrtle Beach has the tax and has more than $27 million for tourism marketing.

Officials estimate North Myrtle Beach would get nearly $7 million to use for tourism advertising. The city would also get nearly $2 million annually to reduce local property taxes.
