Sales tax in Washington, DC

Last Updated: May 31, 2018 02:57AM EDT
Washington, DC has a sales tax rate of 5.75% (as of 2017) for most retail sales.

Hotels follow a different model involving "occupancy tax", which works out to 14.8% for downtown hotels, with different rates for hotels in outlying areas. This will be spelled out on your bill, but if you're concerned, you should ask the hotel to tell you what the total per night is with the tax included.
