The director of the team of the Chair of New Green Transition at the University of Valencia, Aurora Pedro, has prepared a report on the tourist tax. This is a tax that is paid per night of stay in the territory in question, from which children or minors under a certain age are exempt most of the time.


This system has already been implemented in most European countries with the aim of raising specific funds to improve tourist, natural or cultural conditions, among others. In general, the tax has been accepted, and no negative impact has been found.


In Spain, only Catalonia and the Balearic Islands have implemented it, and in the rest of the communities there are proposals for its implementation. This is the case of the Valencian Community, where the Proposition of Law for the creation of the Valencian Tax on Tourist Stays (IVET) has been presented.
