Local sales tax


The Accounting Division collects local taxes on liquor, lodging, and admission sales from Bloomington establishments. A portion of the proceeds are given to the Bloomington Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Bloomington Port Authority to fund marketing and development efforts for the Bloomington hospitality industry.

Sales and tax totals should be reported on the Local Sales Tax Return form and submitted to the Accounting Division each month.

Bloomington Forward

As part of the election on Tuesday, November 7, 2023, Bloomington voters will consider three separate ballot questions — one for each of the three projects in the Bloomington Forward plan. If voters approve the ballot questions, a half-percent citywide sales tax will be authorized to fund the projects. Voters can approve using the half-cent sales tax option for each project separately.
