 Anaheim Tourism Improvement District (ATID)

On September 14, 2010, the Anaheim City Council established the Anaheim Tourism Improvement District (ATID) as a means of providing the necessary resources to enhance tourism activity and increase hotel room stays. The ATID establishes an assessment of 2% of the room rent for all hotel facilities located within the ATID boundaries (Anaheim Resort and the Platinum Triangle). This assessment is not a tax for the general benefit of the City, rather it is an assessment for activities that provide benefits directly to those hotels within the ATID. The following links will provide you with information on the proper collection and remittance of the ATID as well as background information, including the ATID boundaries and complete list of hotels within the district.
