AUSTIN - Governor Abbott today extended his proclamation suspending both the state and local Hotel and Motel Occupancy Tax for relief-effort personnel and victims of the storm statewide. This suspension will help ease the financial burden of those impacted by Hurricane Harvey currently staying in a hotel or motel.

 

“As the effects of Hurricane Harvey continue to cause a temporary housing emergency for victims of the storm, Texas will provide as much relief as possible during these hard times,” said Governor Abbott. “The last thing that these victims and relief-effort personnel should be concerned with during this time of recovery is the cost of temporary shelter. The state will continue to work to get Texans back in their homes as quickly as possible so they can focus fully on rebuilding their lives.”
