Since 1981, Harpersfield Township has had a bed tax of 3%. In 2016, the Township
Trustees voted an updated resolution reflecting current laws. A line item within
the townships general account was eshtablished strictly for the bed tax with proceeds
to be used to promote tourism and economic growth within the township. So far, the
proceeds have been used to join the Ashtabula County Convention and Visitors Bureau
and to start a series of 3 videos to promote the township. The first video is about
lodging options within the township and is now published thru YouTube and other sources.
The second video will be about our wineries and vineyards within the township and
the third video will be about “Points of Interest” for our visitors to the township.
Both videos will be completed next summer. Please help us promote the township
by sharing the videos with your family and friends.
