Taxes for Breakfast with Connecticut’s Bed & Breakfast Tax

If you stay at a bed & breakfast in Connecticut you will actually pay a higher tax on the meals you are served than if you ate at a typical restaurant.

That’s because a law passed in 2017 applied a uniform 11 percent tax to both a room at a bed & breakfast and the meals customers are served as part of their stay.

This law decreased the amount of tax customers pay for their room from the standard hotel rate of 15 percent, but also increased the tax on breakfast from the standard sales tax of 6.35 percent to 11 percent.

The price of the room and food all gets rolled into one bill, which is then taxed at 11 percent. The overall cumulative effect may actually lower your final bill… unless you eat and drink too much.

Then the breakfast tax may ultimately cost you a bit more.
