Random Definition

So I was reading an article here: County Commissioners Shuffle Funds to Pay Bill and I saw a random term that I've heard in the past, bed tax. I don't know about you but I didn't know what it meant so here you go, random definition of the day.

bed tax . A levy imposed by a local government on hotel stays within its jurisdiction. A bed tax is a way for local governments to raise taxes without incurring the wrath of voters since, by definition, the people paying the tax are out of towners who don't vote in local elections.
