GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The New York State Legislature approved a law that authorizes the Town of Greenburgh to generate additional needed revenue by having a 3 percent hotel tax.

This tax could generate, from non-resident visitors, to the town significant revenue; approximately $200,000 to $500,000 a year. The money received will be used to reduce property tax bills and to comply with the tax cap. The town has been seeking permission to impose a hotel tax since at least 2009.

The New York State Legislature had previously authorized New Rochelle, White Plains, Rye and 43 counties in New York to have the tax, but not Greenburgh. Forty-six percent of the counties that had previously been granted permission to have a hotel tax by the state have smaller populations than the Greenburgh.

The villages of Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Elmsford, Hastings, Irvington and Tarrytown, as well as villages within the Town of Mount Pleasant, were also granted permission to adopt a hotel tax this week by the legislature.
