What is BIA?

BIA is the Business Improvement Area assessment of 2% that is paid to Sonoma County for the “Sonoma County Tourism Business Improvement Area Fund.”  Currently, if your gross receipts are more than $350,000.00 per fiscal year you are required to pay the 2% when you submit your TOT, otherwise you can put N/A or 0 for line 4 on the remittance form.
